Storyline

Cynthia is married to Steve and is a selfish hard woman. She decides where they will live, who they will see and even gets rid of Dora, the nanny who raised Steve and is now raising their daughter Ellen. When Steve divorce's Cynthia, even his mother is on Cynthia's side. While pleading a case in Washington, Steve meets a woman named Maris and falls for her. Maris does not know if she is going to the altar or the chopping block, but they marry and come back to his hometown. Unfortunately, Maris is the outsider, and being a small town where Cynthia and Steve grew up, everyone is Cynthia's friend and not Maris. Cynthia will use every occasion, every trick, including Ellen, to try to ruin the life that Steve has with Maris. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

M Astor in MGM shortie on divorce
5 May 2010 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

A real MGM shortie, at only 61 minutes. The story revolves around Stephen Holland (Herb Marshall), the ex wife Cynthia (played by Mary Astor), and the new wife (Virginia Bruce). Playing referee is Mrs. Kingsley, who is friend to both the old and the new wives, as well as the all-knowing socialite matriarch of the town. Also poking her nose in here and there is Holland's mother, played by Janet Beecher. Acc to IMDb, this was Robert Sinclair's very first directing project, and he did quite well. Since they were a couple years into the movie code by 1938, everyone is quite civil, and we know things can't get TOO out of control. Written by Margaret Culkin Banning, who had been married twice herself, making us wonder if this is based on her own life, at least partially... it's also interesting that M. Astor had been married three times herself when this was made. Herb Marshall would be married FIVE times, and Virginia Bruce FOUR... wow, they sure had the right cast making this one about divorce and marriage.
