It's a star vehicle with Clark Gable, Myrna Loy and Jean Harlow, that's filled with old-fashioned Hollywood gloss.

Audience Reviews for Wife vs. Secretary

A normal drama of a suspicious wife and her husband who may or may not be cheating. It's predictable and boring, but the acting is good.

Generally obvious with a good cast. Myrna Loy is so cute in this movie it actually hurts. The star power is the only thing worthwhile in a tale of jealousy and workaholics. The supporting role from Jimmy Stewart made me kind of sad--namely the scene towards the end where he calls Harlow. Wife Vs. Secretary isn't the slapstick comedy I was expecting, but worth watching if only for the cast and set design.

Megawatt cast stuck in a dimestore novel. They way they cranked 'em out in those days, they can't all be winners. Neat to see the stars in atypical roles - Clark Gable as affable millionaire, James Stewart as jealous boyfriend, and Jean Harlow the innocent secretary falsely suspected of being the maneater she usually portrays! Myrna Loy has the most thankless role as the suspicious wife. Stewart and Harlow have the best scene in his parked car as Jimmy flashes the brilliant timing and nuance he would become famous for. I actually felt sorry for Harlow at the end, even though it was supposed to be a feel-gooder. "Don't look for trouble where there isn't any because if you don't find it, you'll make it," the sage moral to this slight cinematic fable.
