Her Husband’s Affairs

Her Husband's Affairs is well-premised fun that has a laugh a minute. As a comedy team, Lucille Ball and Franchot Tone excel. Tone is a slightly screwball advertising-slogan genius while Ball is his ever-loving wife who somehow always winds up with the credit for his spectacular stunts.

Lucille Ball Franchot Tone Edward Everett Horton Mikhail Rasumny Gene Lockhart Jonathan Hale

Her Husband’s Affairs is well-premised fun that has a laugh a minute. As a comedy team, Lucille Ball and Franchot Tone excel. Tone is a slightly screwball advertising-slogan genius while Ball is his ever-loving wife who somehow always winds up with the credit for his spectacular stunts.

Director S. Sylvan Simon’s pace is perfect and he welds zany situations into socko laughs. Motivation for much of the comedy comes from Tone’s sponsorship of a screwball inventor and the products that he develops while searching for the perfect embalming fluid. Gentle fun is poked at advertising agencies and bigshot sponsors and public figures.

Mikhail Rasumny is the crazy inventor and wraps up the role for honors, Edward Everett Horton, Gene Lockhart, a business tycoon, Nana Bryant, his wife, and Jonathan Hale are among others who keep the laughs busy.
