Not With My Wife, You Don’t! is an outstanding romantic comedy about a US Air Force marriage threatened by jealousy as an old beau of the wife returns to the scene. Zesty scripting, fine performances, solid direction and strong production values sustain hilarity throughout.

Story sets up Tony Curtis and George C. Scott as old Korean conflict buddies whose rivalry for Virna Lisi is renewed when Scott discovers that Curtis won her by subterfuge. The amusing premise is thoroughly held together via an unending string of top comedy situations, including domestic squabbles, flashback, and an outstanding takeoff on foreign pix.

Curtis is excellent as the husband whose duties as aide to Air Force General Carroll O’Connor create the domestic vacuum into which Scott moves with the time-tested instincts of a proven, and non-marrying, satyr.
