''A man who could get along with so many women''
27 August 2017 | by darrenpearce111See all my reviews

Teresa Wright is so extremely charming in this even as she plots and murders. Fun to see her in such a different role. The story doesn't matter that much as its the light and fluffy side of this show. Great actress outshining other beautiful women younger than herself as the other wives.
