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."
