Hell hath no fury as a woman spurned is so appropriate for this episode.

Gilbert Roland steals the show as a very nasty wine baron who wants his son to out drink him in order to give him $5,000 for the birth of his child. When the son is able to outlast his father and passes out, Roland condemns him and throws him out.

Of course, all that wine made Roland more lecherous as he tries to convince the girl he wanted his son to marry, to marry him now instead.

Laraine Day plays the faithful secretary who dutifully waited for Roland's wife to die for 20 years. When this actually occurred, Roland promised marriage to be announced that evening. Realizing that this will never take place, Day kills him and attempts to murder the servant who she tells what she has done.

I thought that there would be a trial and the girl who pushed Roland down the stairs after his desires were told to her, would be blamed. That would have been much more interesting.
