This week: The Other Woman
The kept woman, the mistress-clothed in mink, dripping with diamonds: the good-time girl - getting the best from a man, without the responsibility of being married to him: the marriage-breaker: the tart. The popular - one could almost say conventional - image of 'the other woman' draws more from fiction than reality. For her in reality there is loneliness, a particularly hurting kind of jealousy, and a few snatched moments of furtive happiness. Whether she is morally right or wrong, do we understand her life?

[Starring] Valerie Gearon as Vera, Frederick Jaeger as Denis, John Standing as Henry, Mary Chester as the maid
Henry must have had a very good reason for suggesting that his future wife Vera and his best friend Denis spend the night together in a hotel. He could hardly object then when they came home for breakfast and she said, 'Good morning darling, hero we are-reeking of sin' - or could he?
