Synopsis
As a child, Myra is forced to wear eyeglasses and her classmates mock her. When she’s older, she tries to avoid wearing her glasses, feeling they make her unattractive to boys like Alan. Years later, Myra gets a job with an insurance company and is shy and anti-social. She bumps into Alan, now a lawyer. He apologizes for his unthinking comments before, and they fall in love. Myra thinks Alan is cheating on her, but the “other woman” is his married sister Loretta. She wears glasses too, and advises Myra to “control these false feelings of inferiority.” Myra agrees to marry Alan.
