Biscuits and the Long Island Hussy

You already know the basic plot for this kind of story, but you have never seen it played out like this. A happily married man accidentally meets a beautiful temptress and dumps his wife, family and job for the exotic romance that is missing from his normal suburban family life. So how is the plot different in this story? This movie was produced by a woman, and most of the notable characters are women . . . Most of the compelling dialogue is spoken by the women. The men in the story are only there as ‘eye-candy’ for the girls, and to fill out the plot. Instead of smart businessmen having affairs with dumb blondes, smart women are having affairs with dumb businessmen. But of course, like in the stories told by men, none of the people involved turn out to be very intelligent about the way they chase after their prey . . . . Until the closing scene, of course.

Linda and Philip seem to have the perfect marriage. They live in a beautiful home on Long Island along with their teenage daughter and Linda’s wise-cracking but lovable old mother. When Philip is late for the train into Manhattan a beautiful gal offers him a ride into town, and it turns out that she is one of their neighbors. Eve Sheldon is an editor for the famous fashion magazine “Vanity Bazaar” and we can soon see that sparks will fly between Eve and Philip. Philip’s wife Linda is the very ‘perfect’ wife and mother, sewing a new party gown for her daughter, baking popovers and biscuits and other treats along with sumptuous meals every day. But Eve . . . Dressed in beautiful gowns and appearing to be anything but a ‘house-wife’ puts a sparkle in Philp’s eye that gets him all confused. Philip will leave his wife and travel to South America in search of adventure and the women back home will grapple with the choice of being wild and exotic party girls or biscuit-baking mamas.

A wise old lady once said, “When it’s hot, we want it cold. When it’s cold, we want it hot. We always want what we ain’t got.” Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
