Craig's Wife is a 1936 drama film starring Rosalind Russell as a domineering wife. It was based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway play of the same name by George Kelly (the uncle of Grace Kelly), and directed by Dorothy Arzner. The film was remade in 1950 as Harriet Craig, rewritten (and updated) as a vehicle for Joan Crawford and co-starring Wendell Corey.

Plot

The plot centers on twenty-four hours in the life of Harriet Craig, and the home life she has created for herself and her husband. Harriet values objects more than her husband and goes to great lengths to protect her life as she has created it, regardless of what the outcomes are to those around her. The story's message is stated by the Craig's housekeeper, Mrs. Harold (Jane Darwell), who says that "those who live to themselves are left to themselves."
