Craig's Wife is a 1925 play written by American playwright George Kelly, uncle of actress and later Princess of Monaco Grace Kelly. It won the 1926 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It was included in Burns Mantle's The Best Plays of 1925-1926. Harriet Craig was played by Chrystal Herne.
There have been at least three movies based on the play. The 1928 silent version was directed by William C. deMille, Cecil's brother, and starred Irene Rich in the title role. In 1936, Columbia Pictures made a successful film adaptation with Rosalind Russell in the lead. The 1950 film Harriet Craig, featuring Joan Crawford, was also based on the play. A radio adaptation was produced by Orson Welles' Campbell Playhouse on CBS Radio, airing on March 10, 1940, and featuring Welles as Walter Craig, and Ann Harding as Harriet Craig.
