Gloria Swanson is My American Wife in this farfetched but entertaining romantic drama. Married to Argentinian horse rancher Josef Swickard, Gloria is romanced by handsome aristocrat Antonio Moreno. This one has the whole shootin' match: duels, blood feuds, midnight trysts, and a pulse-pounding horse race. Sam Wood, the director famed for shooting every scene twenty times and declaring to his actors "Now let's sell 'em a load of clams!", manages to turn out a few clams of real class and style. My American Wife was based on a novel by Hector Turnbull.
