Mr. Merrick, I married your son because I loved him and thought he loved me. I felt that if he worked on his own for us both it would make a man of him. I put him to the test and he failed me!
You came here to save your son from a fortune-hunting parasite, well you happen to have saved her instead. Annul the marriage, take him back, I don't want him!

Swanson looks divine, so she's a lot more believable when pampered by her wealthy boss/lover than down on her luck as a single mum refusing to rely on her even wealthier ex-husband, who is completely unaware they've had a child together. Corny doesn't begin to describe The Trespasser, and the ending is laughable, but Swanson is always worth watching.
