Wife, Husband and Friend (1939)

wife and hubby

It turns out that her husband Baxter has an incredible voice. Extremely enjoyable, but if you get a chance, see Everybody Does It for some extra comedy and to fill an important plot hole! A diva Barnes falls for him and takes him along on tour with her, finally arranging for him to star with her in an opera. Nevertheless, in its own right, Wife, Husband, and Friend is cute, with some good performances. . Warner Baxter, Loretta Young, and Binnie Barnes star in Wife, Husband, and Friend, a 1939 comedy remade some years later as Everybody Does It with Paul Douglas, Celeste Holm, and Linda Darnell.

It's the story of a society woman Young who dreams, as her mother did, of a career in singing but just doesn't have the vocal chops. Baxter is very funny as the husband, and there's wonderful support from George Barbier and Helen Westley, who play Young's parents. Leonard Borland's contracting business is doing badly, while his monied wife wants to pursue an operatic career. He lets her get on with it until she seems to be a success, when he finds he himself has a singing voice good enough to go on tour with. This brings some money in, and his new singing partner fancies him too.

The problem I had with this film is that it's exactly like Everybody Does It right up until the last half hour, and then it leaves out the best parts of the story. Young is gorgeous and very effective. My other problem is a singing one - the dubbing of Loretta Young's voice is too good. The opera scene in this film can't touch the opera performance in Everybody Does It - nor does it give an explanation for the behavior of the Baxter character, which we get in the later film. Celeste Holm did her own singing in Everybody Does It, and it's pleasant, but not of operatic caliber, making the story more believable. .
