Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton -- our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools -- in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.

CAME ACROSS THESE BITS AND PIECES ABOUT A 1951 FILM, Three Husbands, featuring Howard da Silva, Eve Arden, Ruth Warrick, and Emlyn Williams.

(For those who don't know, Da Silva lived in Croton for many years. You can read more here.)

Wikipedia--The Plot: When a recently deceased playboy, Max, gets to heaven, he is granted a wish. His request: to watch his three best friends, with whom he regularly played poker, for the next 24 hours. That day, each man would receive a letter; tomorrow, Max's will is to be read. Each letter states that he had an affair with that man's wife, all of with whom he was close.

Here's the poster and a mini-write-up from 1951 Modern Screen magazine.

The film received mixed reviews but it does have some very witty moments--and in the end, all reconcile.
