Wives Under Suspicion is a 1938 crime film directed by James Whale, starring Warren William, Gail Patrick, Ralph Morgan, and Constance Moore, and released by Universal Pictures. In 1966, the film entered the public domain (in the USA) due to the Universal Pictures failure to renew its copyright registration in the 28th year after publication.
A district attorney (William) realizes that his own wife (Patrick) might be having an affair while he is prosecuting a cuckolded murderer.
Wives Under Suspicion is a remake of a film also directed by Whale, The Kiss Before the Mirror (1933). Ralph Morgan, brother of Frank Morgan, who plays the prosecutor in The Kiss Before the Mirror, appears in the remake.
