A frothy comedy, The Constant Husband is one of the brightest efforts from the Frank Launder and Sidney Gilliat partnership. The screenplay is light and amusing, and none of the sparkle has been lost in the translation to the screen.
The story could not be more slender. Rex Harrison, an amnesia victim, learns, to his horror, that he has seven wives to his credit. A bigamy charge follows, but rather than face seven eager ex-spouses, he pleas in favor of jail.
Harrison is thoroughly diverting as the amnesia victim. Margaret Leighton makes a belated appearance on the screen, but her im pact is nonetheless notable. Kay Kendall, as the last of the seven wives, gives a sparkling portrayal. Cecil Parker is typically buoyant and Nicole Maurey is sufficiently alluring as another of the ex-wives.
