Day-Time Wife is a 1939 comedy directed by Gregory Ratoff, starring Tyrone Power and Linda Darnell.[1] Linda Darnell and Tyrone Power play Jane and Ken Norton, a married couple approaching their second anniversary. This was 16 year-old Linda Darnell's second film. Day-Time Wife was the first of four films that Darnell and Power made together over the next few years, Brigham Young (1940), The Mark of Zorro (1940), Blood and Sand (1941).[2]


Jane (Linda Darnell) comes to believe her husband Ken (Tyrone Power) is having an extramarital affair with his secretary Kitty (Wendy Barrie). To give him a taste of his own medicine, Jane secretly takes a job as secretary to womanizing architect Bernard Dexter (Warren William), who, as it turns out, and unbeknownst to Jane, has a business relationship with Ken.[3]
