Product Description:

The familiar theme of secretary-wife rivalry gets a new twist in this popular, star-studded MGM romantic comedy directed by the extraordinary Clarence Brown. Clark Gable stars as Van Stanhope, a hardworking magazine publisher who is happily married to Linda (Myrna Loy). Jean Harlow stars as Helen "Whitey" Wilson, Van's secretary and right-hand gal who, despite her love for her employer, respects the sanctity of his happy marriage. Linda cannot stop her misguided suspicions that Whitey is more than a secretary for her husband, fueled by her meddling mother's (May Robson) constant suggestions. When Van goes on an important business trip to Havana and takes Whitey instead of Linda, Linda is infuriated, leading to a series of complications and misunderstandings that leaves Linda believing that she has been right all along. Ultimately, it is up to Whitey to convince Linda that she is in danger of losing an incredibly faithful husband in this love triangle with a twist. Jimmy Stewart costars as Whitey's boyfriend, who is eager to marry the loyal secretary. WIFE VS. SECRETARY is a witty and entertaining romp featuring some of Hollywood's brightest stars.

Plot Synopsis:

A love triangle at its best. A devoted husband whose business dealings put him in constant contact with his voluptuous secretary sets off his wife in a state of doubt, virtually pushing him right into his secretary's arms.
