Storyline

Sylvia is a young woman who we think is contemplating suicide. Her ex-husband, Peter, married her for money. When he forged a check, her father agreed not to prosecute if he divorced her. Now Sylvia is again in touch with Peter, and wants him back. Peter calls her father and tells him that he will stay out of her life for a price. Sylvia's father tells her about his blackmail scheme, and she tells him that she bought a gun to use on Peter if they did not get back together. She goes to her room alone and is followed by her father, who is worried about her and tries to retrieve the gun. Written by Anonymous

Just Didn't Buy It/Freudian Nonsense
26 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You have to have at least a little empathy for someone to go on with a story. The two featured people are the guy who used to lead the Wagon Train and his daughter, who for some reason speaks with an affected English accent. She is catty and sullen and looks to be about forty with a little girl voice. Apparently, she has been in some kind of treatment after a divorce from an ugly, self-centered gigolo. The father is seemingly kind and concerned for her. Unfortunately, he has coddled her through all her tribulations (like not having enough money to do whatever she wants). He tries to control her and look after her, but she's so spoiled it doesn't work. She buys a gun, which is a bad sign. The father thinks she may be suicidal. The only thing we wonder about is who is going to get shot. In my opinion, the whole bunch could have booked passage on the Titanic (I would have rooted for the iceberg).
