Emergency Wedding (a.k.a. "Jealousy" in the UK), is a 1950 film directed by Edward Buzzell. It stars Larry Parks and Barbara Hale. It is a remake of You Belong to Me, which featured Larry Parks in a bit part.[1][2]


Dr. Helen Hunt is a physician married to millionaire Peter Judson Kirk Jr., who is jealous his wife is spending too much time with her male patients. He makes a fool of himself trying to prove her guilt, which causes his wife to leave. But then he puts up the money for a new hospital and she comes back to him.[3]


Critical reception[edit]

The New York Times wrote, "back in 1941, Columbia united Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda in holy matrimony and acrimony as blueprinted in a script by Claude Binyon and a story by Dalton Trumbo labeled, "You Belong to Me." The verdict on this entry was amiable. It was a lightweight lot of fun done by a covey of actors who were happy in their work. Yesterday, the Palace received "Emergency Wedding,"...This remake of a yarn about a millionaire—an insecure gent ludicrously jealous of his doctor-wife—is lightweight without being especially gay or serious. "Emergency Wedding," except for a titter or two and an attempt to diagnose what ails organized medicine, is an unimpressive reproduction." [4]
