Young Wives' Tale, also known as Fun for Four, is a 1951 British comedy film directed by Henry Cass and starring Joan Greenwood, Nigel Patrick, Derek Farr, and Guy Middleton. The film is based on the 1949 play Young Wives' Tale by Ronald Jeans. It features one of Audrey Hepburn's earliest film roles, albeit a minor one, as Eve Lester.
Faced with the post-war housing shortage, two couples, each with an infant child, decide to share a house. Their inability to find and retain a reliable nanny exacerbates the problems caused by the crowding, and a pretty young lodger and Sabina's persistent old beau intensify the tensions.
