Two Wives One Wedding is a low budget 1961 British crime film directed by Montgomery Tully and starring Gordon Jackson, Christina Gregg, and Lisa Daniely. [1] [2]



Tom Murray's wedding day becomes a nightmare when a mysterious stranger turns up claiming to be his wife. Annette is a French woman who had an affair with Tom during World War II, when he was injured near Normandy, and she nursed him back to health. She claims that Tom became her husband then, but this is something he has no memory of. Annette is willing to divorce Tom, but only with a £10,000 settlement. Blackmailed and with his promising medical career in the balance should the story reach the press, Tom turns detective to determine if Annette is really telling the truth.


Critical reception

TV Guide wrote, "an intriguing premise suffers from some unbelievable plot twists and turns"; [3] while wrote, "it's lifted above the mundane by an earnest performance by Gordon Jackson and a decent supporting cast. It's a little too obvious and too reliant on coincidence though, and the final scenes lack both credibility and emotional resonance." [4]
