Role Description

Ralph Baitz: (Supporting) an overly-confident man who married not for love but for career – and has regretted working for his over-bearing father-in-law ever since; has just quit his job and as a result, his wife Dorthea has left him; she has taken their son with her - whom Ralph feels is a sissy due to Dorthea’s doting; rather than fight for the marriage, he wants to sell all of their furnishings and start a new, independent life elsewhere. The surprise visit of his war buddy, George, sends him back to the coarse comfort of a locker-room type of camaraderie, to the horror of newlywed, Isabel; the young, beautiful and emotionally shaken Isabel is not without intrigue to this man who regards her with intense concentration.
