In providing the "synopsis" for Are Husbands Necessary?, one best-
selling film source says merely "And what about this film?" There's more
to the story than that, of course—but not much. The film was based on Mr.
and Mrs. Cugat, a novel by Frank Davis. Ray Milland and Betty Field play a
warring married couple who hope to patch up their differences by
adopting a baby. When Milland's ex-flame Patricia Morrison shows up
unexpectedly, the fur flies.
