About Constant Wife
The Constant Wife (1927) is set in the home of a general surgeon, John Middleton, in Harley Street. It concerns the attempts of an apparently caring wife to stop her family and friends from telling her that her seemingly devoted husband is having an affair with her best friend Marie Louise. However the tables are turned when Constance decides to have a liaison with her former lover Bernard Kersal, who has recently returned from Japan.
