A piece of misogynistic nonsense in which the delights of female dumbness are made celebrated. Inventor Williams, endlessly beset by a shrewish, nagging spouse, sheds her through the agency of the divorce court to the congratulatory plaudits of the judge, Mallalieu. Seeking to avoid women,

he takes a job as a scientist for the War Office. No women are present until the untimely arrival of American colonel Power and his daughter--Greenwood, in her first starring role--who, traumatized by a torpedo attack on the trip to Blighty, has lost her powers of speech. Charmed by this contrast,

the inventor marries her. Following a further shock, however, she regains the use of her vocal cords and proves as verbose as his first wife. They fight, and she flees, pregnant with his child. She volunteers to return to him, improving the situation by feigning muteness. All ends happily (and

quietly).

We honor TV's graduating class and freshmen most likely to succeed

MIXED-ISH - In "mixed-ish," Rainbow Johnson recounts her experience growing up in a mixed-race family in the '80s and the constant dilemmas they had to face over whether to assimilate or stay true to themselves. Bow's parents Paul and Alicia decide to move from a hippie commune to the suburbs to better provide for their family. As her parents struggle with the challenges of their new life, Bow and her siblings navigate a mainstream school in which they're perceived as neither black nor white. This family's experiences illuminate the challenges of finding one's own identity when the rest of the world can't decide where you belong. (ABC/Kelsey McNeal)
