Stanley Ford leads an idyllic bachelor life. He is a nationally syndicated cartoonist whose Bash Brannigan series provides him with a luxury townhouse and a full-time valet, Charles. When he wakes up the morning after the night before - he had attended a friend's stag party - he finds that he is married to the very beautiful woman who popped out of the cake - and who doesn't speak a word of English. Despite his initial protestations, he comes to like married life and even changes his cartoon character from a super spy to a somewhat harried husband. When after several months he decides to kill off Bash's wife in the cartoon, his wife misinterprets his intentions and disappears. Which leads the police to charge him with murder. Written by
In the opening scenes, the same woman in a red skirt and black top can be seen walking past Stanley's house (left to right) twice - firstly when Charles is collecting the newspaper and then when Charles and Stanley are leaving in the car. See more »
'Bash Brannigan, Secret Agent' is syndicated in 463 newspapers. You know why?
Sure, I know... Because it's hard-core pornography, softened slightly, ever so slightly, by excessive violence and SADISM!
'Bash Brannigan' is enjoyed by millions because my readers know it's absolutely authentic! I'd never ask Bash to do anything I hadn't already done myself!

At first, it only says How to Your Wife on the screen, in white letters. Then, the word Murder shows up in red letters in the space between the two rows of text. See more »
A Jack Lemmon classic! One of his best films. It has been some years since I've seen this film. However, it is one of those films that has remained firm in my memory as being enjoyable to watch. Also from the previous comments made, my memory has definitely been jogged! The film is excellent from start to finish. Comical scenes in the solicitor/attorney's office, the party, and the gentlemen's club are most memorable - especially the court room!
