1.11 "Indian Summer"
Rachel Menken (Maggie Siff) has confessed to her sister Barbara (Rebecca Creskoff) that she's seeing Don Draper, a married man. Her sister is understandably concerned...
Barbara: All I know is what I see in the movies. It's magical and then they start talking about him leaving his wife... and then he doesn't. I saw this one where the husband gets the woman pregnant so he kills her.Hmmm. Help me out here, readers.
You don't want to be that woman.
It sounds like Barbara is thinking of A Place in the Sun... (?) only that's not exactly how it goes, Monty not being married to Liz when Shelley gets a bun in the oven. But then again people do get plots mixed up. Are there other 50s or early 6os movies where the two-timer kills his pregnant significant other? Your vast movie expertise is required in the comments.
