| An Early Visit To Cheever Country
Though this is considered a comedy, it has tragic undertones. A child grows very ill while its parents are at a party. At the party, a naive wife is wooed by a dashing neighbor. The neighbor's wife (beautifully played by Rose Hobart) turns out to have serious emotional problems. These were caused by the loss of a child.

We watch Maguire as she reacts to Young's attentions to new neighbor Mary Astor. And Astor at this point could have woo'd the birds from the trees! This all takes place in suburban Connecticut. People are well off. They are professions -- architects, lawyers, doctors. The title couple have what appear to be live-in servants. But there are worms in the apple pie.

The sweet tone of the original "Claudia" is maintained. But shadows are added to it. It might seem to some a soap opera. To me it has the makings of a tragedy. With a few slightly different turns, it could have been -- and surely no one wanted it to be -- a film noir.
