Released in France in 1941 as Histoire de Rire, Foolish Husbands made its American debut in 1948. It all begins when Adelaide (Micheline Presle), wife of Gerard (Fernand Gravet), enters into a weekend affair with young Achille (Gilbert Gil). This she does because her best friend Helene (Marie Dea) is conducting her own affair, and seems to be having a good time. Sadder, wiser, and a bit out of breath, Adelaide eventually returns to Gerard on Monday. Foolish Husbands was based on a stage play by Armand Salacrou, which from all reports was better than the movie.
