There’s something not quite right about the women of Stepford. Having just moved to the picture-postcard town in Connecticut, Joanna Eberhart (Katharine Ross) notices that the women seem to care about nothing more than housework and doting adoringly on their husband’s every need. While the males of the town spend their time at a Men’s Association, Joanna, together with fellow recent arrival Bobbie Markowe (Paula Prentiss), starts to investigate what it is that’s turning the Stepford wives into vacant automatons…
