The Farmer's Wife is a 1941 British drama film directed by Norman Lee and Leslie Arliss and starring Basil Sydney, Wilfrid Lawson and Nora Swinburne.[1] It is based on the play The Farmer's Wife by Eden Phillpotts which had previously been adapted by Alfred Hitchcock for a 1928 film of the same name.[2][3] It was produced by ABPC at Welwyn Studios, at a time when the company's main Elstree Studios had been requisitioned for wartime use.


Farmer Samuel Sweetland, a widower with two daughters, buys a large neighbouring farm that he has coveted all his life. Now convinced that he needs to remarry to provide his new estate with a proper mistress he draws up a list of three possible candidates with the assistance of his housekeeper Araminta Grey. They are Louisa Windeatt, a wealthy and spirited fox-hunting widow, Thirza Tapper, a prim unmarried lady who owns a nearby cottage and Mary Hearne, an attractive barmaid from London.

Meanwhile Sweetland's daughters, the forceful, coquettish Petronell and the shyer Sibley, have their own romantic entanglements of the young men of the area. Petronell tips her hat at Richard Coaker, only to discover that he is in love her younger sister. She finds eventual comfort in the arms of another suitor George. Sweetland's own courtships go badly as for one reason or another each of the women reject his offer of marriage. Dejected it is only then that he realises it his faithful housekeeper Araminta who he really loves.
