Movie Info

In this playful comedy, a husband-and-wife acting duo (real-life spouses Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne) experience difficulties early in their marriage. Worried that his wife might cheat on him, the actor decides to test her faithfulness by pretending to leave town and attempting to seduce her while disguised as a dashing Russian soldier. When she begins to reciprocate the affections of his alter ego, however, it is unclear whether or not she has seen through his ruse.

All Critics (1) | Fresh (1)

  • The famous stage actors, husband and wife Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, were Oscar nominated for playing husband and wife in this early talky, essentially a photographed play, based on Ferenc Molnar's popular satire.

Audience Reviews for The Guardsman

  • Oct 03, 2013
    Not a lot of love for this film by reviewers but I thought it was a cute tale of a man who disguises his identity presumably to catch his cheating wife. Perhaps it is a bit dated but it is charming in its own way.
