At first it was an innocent lie...
23 February 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"My Wife Geraldine" is a very well acted episode of "Four Star Playhouse" that stars Charles Boyer. I did enjoy the show quite a bit but I also found the ending a bit disappointing.

The show begins with Mr. Graham telling his landlady (Una Merkle) about his 'wife'. It seems he was out of work and having trouble finding a job. However, Mr. Martin (Porter Hall) is happy to give him a job but also seems interested in hiring only happily married men. So, Graham made up a wife and went to great lengths to make it look like he had one. This worked for a while, but when folks insisted on meeting her, it got crazy. Since he didn't have one, folks started thinking maybe he'd done something to her! How he works it out is for you to discover...or not.

I generally liked this show. The three main actors were all quite good. The ending, however, seemed sappy and made you wonder if Mr. Graham was just nuts! Disappointing when seen as a whole.
