Stepford Wives, The (Columbia 1975, Katharine Ross, Paula Prentiss)



Like the phrase “Catch-22,” the title of this early feminist-era thriller about a secret conspiracy of husbands who replace their wives with vapid, subservient robots has entered the national lexicon.

Katharine Ross and Paula Prentiss play two newcomers to a Connecticut community where they notice that the wives all seem a little too content with their lives. When they get curious about a men’s club run by Patrick O’Neal, they start to unravel the mystery of what’s happened to the Stepford wives.

The novel by Ira Levin was adapted by renowned scripter William Goldman, director Bryan Forbes was an English actor who moved into directing in the early sixties. He was married to Nanette Newman who had a key role here.

Followed by the made-for-television sequel “Revenge of the Stepford Wives” and a less than stellar big screen remake with Nicole Kidman in 2004.
