Letter to Three Wives, A (1949)

A Letter to Three Wives (1949), directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz.

In the framing story the alpha-female of a little circle of friends writes a letter to three women claiming to have run off with one of their husbands. Away all day on a charity picnic, we have time for three flashback segments while each wonders, "is it me?"

Not really a soap opera drama, more of a social satire and combat of wits, something like the director's All About Eve (1950).


Photographed by Arthur C. Miller.
