Hired Wife DVD


Five-time Golden Globe winner Rosalind Russell (His Girl Friday, Auntie Mame) stars in this 1940 romantic comedy as Kendal Browning, the crafty and quick-witted assistant to business tycoon Stephen Dexter (Brian Aherne, Juarez). When Stephen a bigwig bachelor with a penchant for blondes faces a hostile takeover from a rival company, he's advised to enter into a sham marriage, putting his assets in a new wife's name to avoid bankruptcy. Though the CEO fancies model Phyllis Walden (Virginia Bruce), Kendal whose love for Stephen has burned secretly for months has other ideas about her boss's impending engagement. As Kendal wards off Phyllis and Stephen fights to keep his business afloat, sparks fly, and fizzle, and fly again while laughs abound throughout it all. With strong supporting performances from John Carroll (Go West) and Robert Benchley (Foreign Correspondent), who Ëścomes close to stealing the show as a comic lawyer-pal' (The Times), Hired Wife remains a timeless, sparkling showcase of some of the era's brightest comic talents.
