The ‘begging barn’
A scene from
As Mary and Frank take a stroll together, early on in their 'courtship', they pass a tumbledown barn, occupied by a desperately poor mother and child. At first they walk past, but in response to Mary's concern, Frank turns back and presses something into the woman's hand. Mary is pleased by Frank's act of compassion, but his motives in demonstrating his generosity may not be entirely selfless. She is, however, upset by his hostility towards unmarried mothers. As they walk on, the mother stares after them.
