| A melodrama, typical of its time, highlights interesting divorce issues
"Reno" involves the breakup of the marriage of Felicia and Alex. Alex is the sort of bullying, condescending man who must always have his way. He's also cheating with Rita and rubs Felicia's nose in it. Felicia decides she's had enough and heads for Reno to get a divorce. Meanwhile, Felicia's old flame Dick shows up in Reno as well. Alex is determined to catch the virtuous Felicia cheating so he can get the divorce (and custody of their child) or force Felicia to crawl back to him on her hands and knees. The story works itself out in typically melodramatic fashion, but nevertheless has its interesting elements. The script reflects the family law of the time (in which everything turns on which spouse is caught being unfaithful, even in Nevada) and also accurately reflects the sexist attitudes of both Alex (and other men) as well as the Nevada judge.
