Directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz. 103 mins.
Three women about to depart on all day river cruise receive a letter from the town flirt informing them that she has run off with one of their husbands without revealing which one.
In this delicious piece of Americana, writer/director Joseph L. Mankiewicz crafts a riveting melodrama that is set up like a whodunit only the murderer is replaced by a philandering husband. The plot lines of the wives are played out in juicy flashbacks with comic effervescence but with wit and bite earning him two Academy Awards for his efforts in the year prior to his triumphant “All About Eve”.
