Stage favorite Peggy Wood (later the star of the popular TV series Mama) made her screen debut in the MGM part-talkie Wonder of Women. Adapted from a novel by Herman Suderman, the film stars Wood as Brigitte, the wife of brilliant concert pianist Stephen Tromolt (Lewis Stone). Unable to adapt to domestic life, Tromolt deserts Brigitte in favor of his former sweetheart Karen (Leila Hyams). He wises up and returns to Brigitte only upon learning that his wife is at death's door. After completing her duties in Wonder of Women, Peggy Wood rushed to London to star in Noel Coward's Bitter Sweet, a far more successful venture than her first foray into films.
