Jack Lemmon (Some Like It Hot, The Apartment) stars as Stanley Ford, a successful cartoonist happily living a carefree, single and unattached life in Manhattan. His life takes a dramatic turn after a drunken proposal to a woman (Virna Lisi of The Secret of Santa Vittoria, Queen Margot) who pops out of a cake at a friend’s bachelor party. Regretting his decision he asks for a divorce. Unfortunately, the new Mrs. Ford will have none of it. His Italian-only speaking bride soon takes over his house and his life. Frustrated and seeing no way out of his current predicament, Stanley‘s cartoon strip begins to shift, reflecting his inner, darker thoughts. How can Stanley solve the problem? Well, if you’re the character in his comic strip the only way out may be murder. How To Murder Your Wife directed by Richard Quine (Sex and the Single Girl, Bell, Book and Candle) features supporting turns by legendary British comic Terry-Thomas (It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, The Mouse on the Moon) and Claire Trevor (Key Largo, Murder My Sweet).
