A Letter to Three Wives

Genre: Drama; Starring: Linda Darnell, Ann Sothern; MPAA Rating: Unrated

In A Letter to Three Wives Celeste Holm is the mellifluous, taunting voice of Addie (whom we never see), who writes a poisonous letter to her three friends (Darnell, Sothern, and Jeanne Crain), saying she has run off with one of their husbands.
