Her Husband's Affairs is a 1947 American romantic comedy film directed by S. Sylvan Simon and starring Lucille Ball and Franchot Tone.[2]


Harebrained schemes keep interrupting the honeymoon plans of newlyweds Bill and Margaret Weldon. The schemes are his: Bill constantly backs an eccentric inventor who comes up with a magical hairgrowing formula and one that turns flowers into stone. Circumstances conspire to make it appear that Bill has murdered the inventor, but in the courtroom he spends more time promoting his wild ideas than he does defending his life. Margaret's testimony saves her husband, after which he continues to demand that she quit meddling in his affairs. The snippet-review for Blockbuster reads, "Pleasant comedy owes screwy bounce to Ball."[3]
