Movie Info

In this film, Leslie Howard plays a wealthy publisher who decides to marry the socially-prominent Myrna Loy, leaving his mistress Ann Harding in the lurch. In comically-convoluted fashion, Loy behaves like a callous libertine, while Harding is the soul of love and fidelity.

Critic Reviews for The Animal Kingdom (The Woman in His House)

All Critics (2)

To begin with, it is by far the best study of poor little rich people Philip Barry has written.

Though its dialogue seems stiff by today's standards its dramatics still remain adult.

Audience Reviews for The Animal Kingdom (The Woman in His House)


Basically a pre-code film stage play. Everyone is a bit stiff but the content is racy especially considering the time and all the women, particularly Myrna Loy are beautifully gowned.
