Wives Under Suspicion is a gripping crime drama film that was released in 1938. The movie stars Warren William, Gail Patrick, Ralph Morgan, and others. The movie is directed by James Whale and is based on a novel by Mary Roberts Rinehart. The story begins with District Attorney Jim Stowell (Warren William) who is investigating a murder case. A man named Philandering Harlan (William Lundigan), is accused of killing his wealthy wife, Gloria (Constance Moore). Stowell works hard to gather evidence against the accused but finds himself distracted by his own marital problems. His wife, Lucy (Gail Patrick), is a successful lawyer and they have been married for several years but their relationship has hit the rocks.

Meanwhile, the case against Philandering Harlan is progressing slowly. Stowell is convinced that Harlan is guilty but lacks the evidence to prove it. He enlists the help of a young, aspiring lawyer, Kathryn Courtland (June Storey), to assist him with the case.

As Stowell and Courtland start investigating the case, they begin to uncover some startling facts. They discover that Gloria Harlan was not as loyal as she appeared, and had a lover, Harry Palmer (Leonard Carey), who is also a suspect in the case. They also learn that Philandering Harlan had a motive to kill his wife, as he stood to inherit a large sum of money from her.

As the investigation progresses, Stowell and Courtland grow closer and Stowell's relationship with his wife, Lucy, improves. However, things take an unexpected turn when one of the suspects is killed, and Stowell now finds himself under suspicion.

The movie reaches a thrilling climax as the real killer is revealed and the mystery is solved, but not before several twists and turns. The performances by the actors, especially Warren William, Gail Patrick, and Ralph Morgan, are top-notch, and the direction by James Whale is remarkable.

In conclusion, Wives Under Suspicion is a must-watch for fans of classic crime dramas. The movie's intriguing plot, suspenseful moments, and excellent performances make it a timeless classic that continues to fascinate audiences to this day.
