The Feminine Touch (1941) is a comedy film directed by W. S. Van Dyke, and starring Rosalind Russell and Don Ameche.[1]


College professor John Hathaway is writing a book about jealousy and how he doesn't believe in it. He isn't the least bit perturbed, for example, when his lovely wife Julie is the object of desire in the eyes of the school's football star, Rubber Legs Ryan.

John goes to New York to meet with publisher Elliott Morgan and meets associate Nellie Woods, who loves Elliott but can't get him to commit. Elliott is infatuated with John's wife Julie, but after a while he realizes that she is faithful to her husband. Julie, though, continues to be irked at John's complete lack of jealousy.

A misunderstanding leads to John being placed under arrest. Elliott's failure to help him or to contact lawyer Freddie Bond as promised is maddening to Julie, who wants John to knock his block off. She also catches John and Nellie in an embrace and turns red with jealous rage, which puzzles John because they were merely celebrating his book sale.

Nellie's threat to quit finally gets Elliott to propose, but one day John finally explodes and strikes him, which leads to a fight between the two women, too. By the time a total stranger calls his wife "sugar" on the street, John is ready to come up swinging.
