Worse than Being Seduced, or, The Honeymoon in Paris for One

The grandson of Martha Washington and adopted son of George Washington purchased land in 1802 and built the estate that he called Arlington House, named for the small village in Gloucestershire, England that was home to the Washington family before coming to America. In 1864 the U.S. Government purchased the land and it became what is today Arlington National Cemetery.

Today the only people that can be buried in this national treasure are active duty members of the Armed Forces or a military veteran who is retired from active military service. Two U.S. Presidents are buried there. Of course, everyone probably knows about the Eternal Flame at the grave of assassinated President John F. Kennedy. President William Howard Taft is also buried there.

In earlier years, people who were not active military were also buried in this historic place. The son and grandson of President Abraham Lincoln are buried there, and nearly 4,000 former slaves were buried in a section reserved for free black citizens after the Civil War.

If you wander to section 3, site 2231-AR you will find the graves of Air Force Brigadier General Theron John Coulter, and his wife, Constance Bennett-Coulter, the star of this pre-code romantic adventure. In this adventure Constance Bennett is Sylvia Brenner, a wall-flower secretary for a single swinging bachelor who will only date married women. He is smart enough to know that he can have all the fun of a romantic relationship with none of the drudgery of married life, because a happily married woman cannot expect him to ever propose marriage.

Unfortunately, his current girlfriend informs him that she is getting a divorce so that they can get married. Swinging lawyer Gaylord Stanton, played by Kenneth MacKenna, is suddenly confronted with the one thing that he worked so very hard to avoid – married life. He muses that there must be a way out. There must be a way to avoid proposing marriage to his current girlfriend, but what can it be?

Suddenly inspired, he tells his girlfriend to go and party with the rest of the group, because he just remembered some important business that he must discuss with his unattractive and shy secretary. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
