Wife vs. Secretary vs. Under the Yum Yum Tree



While I enjoy both of these movies: one where a man is the object of two womens' affection and the other vice versa (the Lemmon vehicle), Wife vs Secretary gets my vote hands-down. Unlike the yum-yum tree, the Gable, Loy, and Harlow triangle is played more reticently with no cartoonish parties. The reality, depth, heart, and complexity of human misunderstanding and uncondtional love is explored deeply. In addition, Jimmy Stewart co-stars. Four of the greatest screen legends accompanied by sterling dialogue and undeniable chemistry is paired off a against a good but just average comedy. Wife vs. Secretary is the clear winner!
