I wonder if Sweet Gwendolyn and the Countess is a reference to Oscar
Wilde's Importance of Being Earnest.  There is Lady Bracknell and her
daughter Gwendolyn.

Internet movie database (www.imdb.com) is a great source for looking up
names of characters (among other things).

Good luck.

I don't know Edward Fields.
