Those material things which cause Clyde to contemplate murder are taken for granted by his  American Dream Girl. Typifying young, sophisticated wealth, Sondra Finchley is the glass of  Lycurgus fashion. She is devoted to clothes and fun and games and romantic love. Society is her  stage, and nature is her playground. She plays with the conventions around her but does not break  them. Unlike Roberta Alden, Sondra Finchley is the daughter of a rich manufacturer. She is not only  popular with her select social circle, but she is its pace-setter. Her pursuits — swimming, boating,  riding, driving, tennis, and golf — seem more like outdoor parties. And at parties it is her custom to  shatter young men with her charms, Gilbert Griffiths excepted. In spite of the demands upon her  attentions, she remains very much her own young lady, free of entangling alliances or compromises.
