Two Wives Aren't Better Than One
23 February 2018 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

Peter (Michael Callan) is hiring his first private secretary, with the approval of Personnel Manager Gregory (Digby Wolfe). While Peter is entranced by sexy applicants, Gregory is focused only on efficiency. They agree upon the beautiful Cynthia Marsh (Brooke Bundy). Peter is working with his boss Mr. Brahms (Jack Collins) on the account of supermarket giant Mr. Max Cartwright (familiar character actor Parley Baer, "The Andy Griffith Show"). While taking his new secretary out to lunch, Mr. and Mrs. (Claudia Bryar) Cartwright spot them being romantic and assume Cynthia is Peter's wife. When Greta (Patricia Harty) comes to the office, he must hide her from Mr. Cartwright.
