Directed by: Alfred E. Green

Synopsis: Tim O’Hara (Paul Kelly) is a down-and-out sailor who is shown kindness by Bertha Krasnoff (Aline MacMahon), a spinster who owns a fur shop.  The two marry but personal tragedy and Tim’s philandering ways threaten to tear them apart.

Kitty Cameo: After Bertha meets Tim in the zoo she invites him over for a meal and then extends the invitation for him to spend the night.  Tim asks if she lives alone and she says, “Just me and Harry.”  Tim asks who Harry is and she points to a nearby chair where a tabby cat is sitting and says, “There’s Harry.”  Sadly Harry is not seen again in the film.

Final Mewsings: We hope Harry didn’t end up in one of the fur coats!
