Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The "Armstrong" in Armstrong's Wife was played by Thomas Meighan, just on the verge of his superstardom. As indicated by the title, however, the plot's emphasis is on Meighan's wife, played by Broadway luminary Edna Goodrich. Set in the Canadian north woods, the plot finds city-bred Goodrich having difficult adjusting to her husband's rough-hewn lifestyle. Future director James Cruze plays a bounder who covets Goodrich for himself. Engaged by producer Jesse Lasky as part of his "Famous Players in Famous Plays" series, Edna Goodrich failed to click with movie audiences, and returned to the friendlier confines of the stage.
