Remakes: My Favorite Wife

Loosely based on Alfred Lord Tennyson's 1864 poem, Enoch Arden, these comical movies concern the return of a shipwrecked wife on the very day her husband marries another woman.  The husband has waited the appropriate seven years for her to be declared legally dead.  If that isn't complicated enough, she spent the entire time on a desert island with a hunky dude who'd like to make their relationship more permanent.  The laughs are aplenty as the husband tries to hide his first wife from his bride and the wife tries to hide her island companion from her husband.
