The Eccentric Family, the Formal Dinner Party, and the Lousy Lawyer

The large Prouty family lives in a large house in a small town, and they are broke. Mr. Prouty was a famous author who kept them in luxurious style before his death, but now they are selling everything in the house just to make ends meet. A mysterious millionaire has just purchased a large tract of land nearby and a fellow visits the Prouty house to possibly purchase the house for the millionaire owner of the company that is building a new plant nearby.

When the fellow meets Portia Prouty, the oldest daughter of the large family, he falls instantly in love with her, and she with him. It doesn’t take us long to surmise that the young fellow is in fact the millionaire businessman, but everyone thinks he is just an employee. The Prouty family consists of the mother, three sisters and two brothers, and all of them have distinct and quirky personalities that add considerable spice to the story . . . . . And besides Mother and the five grown children, there is Uncle Andy, a maybe hard of hearing old coot that makes the rest of the family seem normal.

The skunk in the woodpile is the family lawyer, who brings the family ever smaller royalty checks for their late father’s books, and who wants to ‘help’ the family by purchasing the rights to his books for five hundred dollars. Then suddenly, amidst all of the comic situations, when all seems to be going well, a stranger appears at their front door. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
