BRITISH BEAUTY CHRISTINA GREGG IN 'TWO WIVES AT ONE WEDDING'

Christina Gregg in Two Wives Year: 1961 Rating: **

Watching TWO WIVES AT ONE WEDDING strictly for the presence of British model/actress Christina Gregg is a big let down... 

And can be summed up in one sentence that her would-be husband, a World War II vet played by Gordon Jackson, says before facing the climatic face-off against two con artists: "Stay in the car!" 

Sadly that (mostly proverbial) car includes the present time that's only half the picture, mostly taking place in flashbacks in war-torn France where he's taken into a safe house, wounded, delirious. And winds up blowing-it even worse than a few years later when he infamously utters "Good Luck" in THE GREAT ESCAPE... 

The biggest let-down however is that this living-room-mystery's French-accent femme fatale, Lisa Daniely, crashing on Jackson and a passive Gregg's wedding by claiming that she married him during the war (and that flashback), never embraces or is allowed to embrace her villainy, making TWO WIVES a talky exercise in futility, and one that should have ended in a cat fight.
