Description by OLDIES.com:
A feuding couple tries to one-up one another by becoming opera singers, but when they both learn that their teachers have been less than honorable, they fall back into each others arms.
20th Century-Fox evidently adored "triangle" comedies like WIFE, HUSBAND AND FRIEND; apparently so did Loretta Young, who appeared in most of these films. Young plays the wife of businessman Warner Baxter, while "friend" Cesar Romero is an amorous singing teacher who convinces Young that she has a future in opera. To show up his wife, Baxter takes lessons from diva Binnie Barnes--and as it turns out, he's the one with the ideal operatic voice. The romantic quadrangle is resolved when Baxter makes a disastrous stage debut, whereupon Romero and Barnes exit and Baxter and Young realize the error of their ways. WIFE, HUSBAND AND FRIEND was remade in 1949 as EVERYBODY DOES IT, with Paul Douglas (of all people) as the would-be Caruso.
