Divorce: 30's Style!

This was a rather unusual film for it's time period, covering divorce and all, but gets bogged down somewhat sidetracked in the "Awww! Look how cute the kid is, and look what shenanigans he's up to now!" theme it takes in the middle. A society wife finds his husband getting into a car with the atypical 'other woman', the woman takes Junior far far away, with an agreement that Junior will spend 6 months at each of his parent's place. Now, at this point it's actually a riveting drama, a kid town between his two parents! Mom is just barely making it with his son! But when he returns to his Father's well-to-do place, well, the whole thing almost becomes Annie, with the cute tyke getting a comedic relief tutor, and the kid gets up to no-good running away to play baseball.. that kid is just too darn cute!! It somewhat turns around when the kid falls off a wall, and has 'spinal injuries' (read: a light fever) forcing his Mother to come back to visit Father. They start to reconcile.. problem is, the mistress is still in the father's life… This is actually well acted, with the lead kid actor doing quite the capable job with the adults in the film. The main problem with this film as I said before, is that this doesn't know which direction it wants to go, which hinders the film considerably.
