A Letter To Three Wives


A Letter To Three Wives Review

It's almost too clever. Joseph L. Mankiewicz's biting story presents three girlfriends headed out for a day trip who receive a letter addressed to the group -- the writer, one Addie Ross, has run off with one of their husbands. But which one?

What follows is some of the best dialogue to come out of the postwar era, a parlor room mystery as we dig into the pasts of the three women to try and figure out which husband has had enough. Keeps you on the edge of your seat but, boy, does the film take itself seriously at times.
