A LETTER TO THREE WIVES

How many ways can you say A LETTER TO THREE WIVES.

Most European countries stayed with the original title, but I like the  French title, DOMESTIC CHAINS!

DOMESTIC  CHAINS

Well, it is about the three wives, so Kirk,Paul and Jeffrey don’t merit a picture.

A LETTER TO THREE WIVES

Again, the ladies feature prominently(in alphabetical order),  but we do see the three husbands this time.

LETTER TO THREE WOMEN

The portrayal of ‘Addie Ross’ is shown in shadow and in what looks like a negligee – the temptress! She seems to be on the telephone – spreading gossip, no doubt. She’s already sent the fateful letter.

LETTER TO THREE WIVES

In this poster, the men are omitted altogether. It’s Jeanne,Linda and Ann who will sell the movie.

I like the way the ladies have been painted, lovely pastel colours  , with Linda holding  the all important letter. Is Ann holding the envelope?

I wonder if Kirk,Paul and Jeffrey ever saw these posters ,with their names in very small print! Probably not.

In this poster, I guess the wives  have read the letter . They all look depressed.

FRIEND OF THE FAMILY WITHIN

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This poster is not nearly so well drawn. I can just about recognise Paul Douglas.

Maybe the title,FRIENDS OF THE FAMILY WITHIN, refers to the never seen’Addie Ross’.

  1. Saw it many years ago but had forgotten it had the same idea, only this time it is the husbands who get the letter. Considering it was only a year after the Fox classic, I doubt Joseph Mankiewicz would have been pleased.
    I vaguely remember Eve Arden in it.

  2. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen this, and I think I have this on my shelf in a DVD collection. (Sheesh!)

    Beautiful posters, and I liked that you pointed out the absence of/reduced size of the husbands. I’m not sure I would have picked up on that if I were doing the same post.
