Movie Info

A pushy pessimist with an eye for the finer things in life, Harriet (Rosalind Russell) has married Walter Craig (John Boles) because he is able to provide the kind of posh lifestyle she is certain she deserves. She feels not the slightest bit of guilt about her lack of affection for her husband, and aside from John himself, everyone around her seems to realize this. But when her husband gets a scare involving the police, Harriet's way of life is threatened.

Audience Reviews for Craig's Wife

  • Sep 10, 2008
    A film so criminally undervalued and a little forgotten, it's also a much better version of the play than it's glossy and somewhat misogynistic Crawford remake. It's pioneering director, Dorothy Arzner, was unique in two ways. Not only the only woman director making big studio pics during the Hollywood Golden Age but also a lesbian who made no secret of her sexuality. Most surely a gay icon as well as a feminist one. Her version of Craig's Wife is very much a crack at the male dominated studio system of the time (good on her!!). Arzner's Harriet Craig is also a much more sympathetic character than the one being justly (?!) punished in the remake (which, of course, was produced and directed by men)
