Emergency Wedding (titled Jealousy in the UK) is a 1950 film directed by Edward Buzzell and starring Larry Parks and Barbara Hale. It is a remake of You Belong to Me, a film in which Parks appeared in a bit part.[1][2]

Plot

Dr. Helen Hunt is a physician married to millionaire Peter Judson Kirk Jr. who is jealous that his wife is spending too much time with her male patients. He makes a fool of himself trying to prove her guilt, which causes her wife to leave. But when he donates funds for a new hospital, she returns to him.[3]

Cast

Reception

In a contemporary review for The New York Times, critic A. H. Weiler wrote that Claude Binyon's script was largely a facsimile of Dalton Trumbo's script for the 1941 film You Belong to Me. Weiler described Emergency Wedding as "lightweight without being especially gay or serious" and "an unimpressive reproduction."[4]
