Five-time Golden Globe winner Rosalind Russell stars in this 1940 romantic comedy as Kendal Browning, the crafty and quick-witted assistant to business tycoon Stephen Dexter (Brian Aherne). When Stephen – a bigwig bachelor with a penchant for blondes – faces a hostile takeover from a rival company, he’s advised to enter into a sham marriage, putting his assets in a new wife’s name to avoid bankruptcy. Though the CEO fancies model Phyllis Walden (Virginia Bruce), Kendal – whose love for Stephen has burned secretly for months – has other ideas about her boss’s impending engagement. As Kendal wards off Phyllis and Stephen fights to keep his business afloat, sparks fly, and fizzle, and fly again – while laughs abound throughout it all. With strong supporting performances from John Carroll (Go West) and Robert Benchley (Foreign Correspondent), who ‘comes close to stealing the show as a comic lawyerpal’ (The Times), Hired Wife remains a timeless, sparkling showcase of some of the era’s brightest comic talents.
