Dream Wife (1953)

      "...Cary Grant is on hand to get laughs where it isn't always possible to find them in the script."

With Deborah Kerr.

Dream Wife - Review is taken from 'The Films of Cary Grant' by Donald Deschner (1973):

"Dream Wife was made under the personal supervision of Dore Schary and Cary Grant is on hand to get laughs where it isn't always possible to find them in the script.  Nevertheless, this uneven mixture of sophisticated humor and downright slapstick amounts to little more than a fairly amusing comedy.

Quote From Today... Dream Wife (1953)

 "...Some of the sand was missing!"

With Deborah Kerr.

Dream Wife was Cary Grant's 59th full length feature film.

Clemson Reade: We haven't been able to make a definite plan since we met.

Effie: Well, we went to Vermont for two weeks.

Clemson Reade: Yes. Yes, that's right. To her grandfather's farm. For two wonderful relaxing weeks in glorious Vermont.

Walter McBride: Tim'll be there in September.

Clemson Reade: We spent one day there. She had to leave to take care of the crisis in Sahara; some of the sand was missing.

Effie: Well, you stayed on.

Clemson Reade: With grandfather. It wasn't the same thing.

On This Day...Dream Wife (1953)

Dream Wife was Cary Grant's 59th full length feature film and his first of three films with Deborah Kerr.

Grant plays Clemson Reade who after breaking off an engagement with, far too busy, Effie (Kerr), seeks matrimonial bliss with a Princess from Bukistan, who from birth is trained in the art of pleasing men.

The Los Angeles Times wrote - "Cary Grant gives the typical light comedy portrayal for which he is noted. Miss Kerr, beautifully gowned throughout, comes through with a solid performance as the conniving American girl who has lost her man. Miss St. John makes a fine impression in her initial featured film role."
