Storyline

Needing to fill the position of general manager of his company, and believing that an executive's wife is crucial to her husband's success, auto industry mogul Gifford brings three couples to New York to size up: Jerry and Carol: he hard-driven and self-reliant, she willing to use her beauty to further her husband's career; Sid and Elizabeth, he ulcer-ridden and torn between achieving success and restoring their troubled marriage, she positive that his job will kill him, but gamely agreeing to play the good wife for the duration; and down-to-earth Bill, whose good-natured Katie fears that his promotion would spell the end of their idyllic familiy existence.

Trivia

The portrait at the center of Gifford's "wall" of paintings of his romantic conquests is the one of Gene Tierney used in "Laura" (1944), which was Clifton Webb's talking-picture debut and first Oscar-nominated role. See more »

Goofs

The office building Gifford is driven up to at the start of the film is on Park Avenue in Manhattan. However, in the succeeding shot of him inside the building, the street seen outside is definitely not Park Avenue but another, narrower, Manhattan street. See more »

Behind The Scenery
8 November 2005 | by (Tampa, FL United States) – See all my reviews

The story is set in high-powered New York, where an executive in the automotive industry brings in three candidates for a position well up on the corporate ladder. Each man brings his wife along, and as the film proceeds, it's clear that the wives are a factor in considering which of the men will be chosen.

The film shows that there was an unspoken market understanding that an important influence in car purchases is the opinion of the wife of a family. This, again, relates to the film's title.

In one respect, the film is a bit like a mini-Grand Hotel; that is, we get a glance of the personal situations and concerns of each family. But the film spends more than a little time showing off potential automotive designs.

The decision as to whom the position is given pivots on the realization of one of the candidates as to what his handicap is. Given the title of the film, the decision is rather ironic.
