I watched The Stepford Wives (1975). I didn’t know there was an older version. I watched it on Tubi. It has Katharine Ross, Peter Masterson, Tina Louise, Nanette Newman, and Paula Prentiss in it.
Big Warning: there is a little bit of violence.
In this movie, Joanna and Walter move to a new little town called Stepford. Joanna is a photographer and Walter is a lawyer. The town has an all-male group. In order to be part of the group, you have to sacrifice your wife. Joanna and another woman named Bobbie are the only two real women in town. They later discover that the other women are robots. Joanna tries to run, but in the end, her robot takes her over.
I liked this movie. Next week I’m watching The Stepford Husbands. It was one of the sequels. It was made in 1996.
One thought on “The Stepford Wives (1975)”
I’m glad you watched this! It had a certain creepy resonance when it was originally produced, during the second-wave feminist movement. Thanks for drawing others’ attention to it!
