First shown in the United States on NBC television, 6th November 1955, but with twenty minutes cut so that the film could be shown with commercials in a 90-minute time slot. This was the first time that a feature-length film premiered in the United States before reaching the theaters. It was also the first time a feature film was broadcast in color, but, since few viewers had color receivers at this time, most people saw it in black and white. See more »
In 'The Constant Husband' a man loses his memory, and then recovers it to find that he has an unusually large number of women in his life. The success of a comedy like this hinges on the strength of the leading actor; Rex Harrison carries it off very well. The character he plays is comparatively wealthy and over-privileged, and it is not easy for this viewer to forget than life in the mid 1950s was considerably less comfortable for the vast majority of people in Britain. Among the glamorous and less-than-glamorous supporting actors are Kay Kendall, Margaret Leighton, Cecil Parker, George Cole and Michael Hordern. The script includes some sort of running joke about Wales which, being from Wales, I failed to understand.
