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

What's up with the casting?!
4 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was almost impossible to get into - the casting was so strange, it was completely distracting. Ann Todd - born 1-24-1909 - plays the daughter of John McIntire - born 6-27-1907. That's right - he had a child when he was only 19 months old!! That must be in the Guinness record book! As if that wasn't weird enough, she has a British accent, and he has an American one. That could have been explained by a family move to England from the States when she was a baby, but nothing like that was mentioned. The actor playing her ex-husband has only one facial expression - "grinning monkey". Who cast these people?? The plot isn't much to speak of either. Skip this one.
