Too Many Husbands (1940)

Too Many Husbands
Whether it’s a man and two women, or a woman and two men, the love triangle has been Hollywood’s bread and butter for decades.  1940 was all about this, as evidenced by two highly similar movies that came out within months of each other – the Cary Grant starring My Favorite Wife, and today’s film, Too Many Husbands.  I reviewed My Favorite Wife last January and you can read it here.  Though I did enjoy My Favorite Wife, Too Many Husbands edges it out as the victor between the two with a wittier script by Claude Binyon and a trifecta of equally hysterical performances from Fred MacMurray, Jean Arthur, and Melvyn Douglas.
