Movie Info

A wealthy young heir rebels when his snooty parents refuse to allow him to marry a lovely young secretary. Deciding to teach them a lesson, he goes West where he falls in love and marries the daughter of a Native American chief. He brings her home to meet his parents, who are naturally appalled, and vengeance is his. Unfortunately their marital bliss is disturbed when a woman shoots her married lover and the Indian girl is blamed for the crime. The husband then goes to the police and confesses the crime to protect her. Fortunately, the astute police put the couple together in a room bugged with a concealed microphone. They then learn that both are innocent.

Critic Reviews for Behold My Wife

All Critics (2)

It's been a long time since Sylvia Sidney's had a part fully worthy of her talent.

April 20, 2020 | Full Review…

There are films so bad that they impress themselves far more vividly than worthier productions; and I'm afraid that Behold My Wife is a picture destined to hang for ever on memory's wall.
