Paulette Goddard stars as Mrs. Laura Cheveley, the femme fetale plotting to sully the reputation of distinguished politician Robert Chiltern (Hugh Williams) to spite his wife, Lady Chiltern (Diana Wynyard). Holding secret information that Chiltern’s reputation and wealth was founded illicitly, Mrs. Cheveley blackmails him into a fraudulent scheme to build a canal in Argentina for her own personal gains. Powerless to object, Chiltern agrees, putting at risk both his prestigious reputation and his standing as an ‘ideal husband’.
Featuring costume design by the legendary society photographer and designer Cecil Beaton, An Ideal Husband is a lavish and visually stunning adaptation of one of Oscar Wilde’s most popular and successful plays.
