    The Office Wife
    Illicit office romances provide the basis of this melodrama. The story centers around an older man's secretary who drops her real boyfriend to seduce her boss. When he discovers that his wife has begun fooling around with younger men he lets his secretary have her way. Fortunately, the boss's wife files for divorce and now everyone is free to fool around. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

    Party Husband
    Based on a novel by Geoffrey Barnes, Party Husband is a weak-tea drawing room comedy utterly dependant upon the charms of its stars. Dorothy Mackaill and James Rennie play Laura and Jay, a thoroughly modern married couple who vow to give each other full and unbridled freedom in extramarital matters. Unfortunately, Jay abuses the privilege when he sleeps with his wife's best friend (Mary Doran). Shortly afterward, Laura slips off for a night alone with her boss Horace Purcell (Donald Cook), only to inform her would-be lover that she's merely trying to teach her husband a lesson. The untimely appearance of Laura's mother (Helen Ware) serves only to further complicate this ticklish situation. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
