Movie Info

Clemson Reade (Cary Grant) feels that his fiancée, Effie (Deborah Kerr), puts her work ahead of him. So after calling off their engagement, he decides to marry Tarji (Betta St. John), a Middle Eastern princess who is far less liberated. However, foreign customs dictate that the wedding must wait several months, during which time he and Tarji must live apart. As the new bride adjusts to Western ways, State Department employee Effie is assigned to chaperone the pair, further complicating matters.

Audience Reviews for Dream Wife

  • May 17, 2008
    Had its moments mostly because of the charisma of the cast, but the plot was naive.

    This was a decent enough romantic comedy. It stars Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. The film basic plot has Grant and Kerr character's as a couple engaged to be married. But some differences come up and they break up. So Grant seeks out to marry the perfect wife. This wife though is a princess and has ties to oil. Step in Kerr character with the US government that want to make sure everything goes smooth for this wedding so they can get a oil contract. Grant and Kerr are both very good in this. The story overall is a bit silly but fun. Not one of Grant's best comedies but still he made me laugh in this. Worth at least a one time watch.
