Format: VHS Tape
This is where Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr first displayed the chemistry that worked so memorably in the later AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER. The plot is silly -Grant dumps workaholic Kerr for simplistic, adoring "old-fashioned" wife-type. But before the wedding Kerr starts to educate the meek one. Except for Grant and Kerr it is a mediocre work. Oscar nommed for elaborate oriental costuming and Kerr's constantly changing fashions.

This is not the type of movie someone who loved "An Affair to Remember" would necessarily enjoy, because it is quite different. Still, it is fun to see the interplay between these two very accomplished actors, and the ending, as always, leaves you happy.

if you want a similarity to "an affair to remember" this won't be it but its an entirely charming film , cary grant's performance is really one of his better works. Kerr has been better in other works. Grant, who wants a wife who can "just find having babies and taking care of a man" pleasurable , finds a dream wife from the fictitious country of Bookistan. hijinks ensue with Grant trying to get closer to his bride to be, meanwhile Kerr is his translator who follows his every step, not to mention the amusing "skyscraper" who knows what lengths Grant will go to to get a simple kiss..
charming. i can see this as a remake but as always the originals are better then potential remakes, and this is no different., worth a watch

Format: DVD
This is a great DVD with good quality. Some of the other archive collection DVDs have better quality as this one has a couple of places where the voice and lips are not in sync but I still recommend this. I had never seen this movie before buying the DVD but it is very funny and Cary Grant is just wonderful.

All of the Archive Collection DVDs are available from the Turner website for $17.99. Please support Turner with getting more classic movies onto DVD.

Order this because my wife thinks it's one of Cary Grant's best movies! After years of trying to find a DVD copy, we found Amazon had it (was only on VHS just a year ago).This copy is of fair quality, but the audio goes from loud to quite, with sudden drops in the volume throughout the movie (one drop lasted several minutes). As far as the movie goes it's 2 stars at best. I'd never seen the movie before, so we bought it...and besides I'm a big Cary Grant fan so why not get it? Now I know why it's never on TV. The movie is slow, and not at all engaging, it just never comes together to pull you into the plot. However it does have Cary Grant did I say that. As far as being funny (it's supposed to be), I didn't find very many laughs, I may have been amused once or twice at best. Thumbs down on the quality of the DVD, and the Movie!

Format: DVD
"Dream Wife" (1953) marked the inauspicious pairing of Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr - a few years before their classic screen encounter in "An Affair to Remember." Director Sidney Sheldon's contrived romantic comedy makes the elegant Grant look foolish and decidedly haggard. Not even the presence of Walter Pidgeon can save this dreary product from the MGM assembly line. Cary's last black-and-white film (and perhaps his weakest).
