Storyline

Although she is married, Geraldine Laird insists upon living with her mother, much to the disgust of her husband Dean, who would prefer a smaller house where he would see more of his family and less of his in-laws and uninvited guests. Laird has an ambition to write plays, so when Kennedy Bond, a literary agent, visits the village and tells him he has talent, Laird accompanies her back to New York. Geraldine, determined to save her husband, follows him to the city. There she accepts a job as a saleswoman and is discovered by a theatrical manager who sees her impersonations of actress Sarah Bernhardt and offers her a job. Becoming a theatrical star, Geraldine encounters her husband, the failed playwright, at a banquet given in her honor. After denouncing him in front of the guests, Geraldine later forgets her anger and they are reconciled. Written by Pamela Short
