Wives Under Suspicion is a 1938 crime film directed by James Whale, starring Warren William, Gail Patrick, Ralph Morgan, and Constance Moore, and released by Universal Pictures. In 1966, the film entered the public domain (in the USA) due to the Universal Pictures failure to renew its copyright registration in the 28th year after publication.
