The Haunted Honeymoon
Webster Frye is a New York City fellow getting married to Jacqueline, and he wants to take her on a long honeymoon to sunny California. Unfortunately, Jackie’s father has purchased a farm for the newlyweds and Jackie insists that they honeymoon there. Of course the new bride wins that argument and the honeymoon in California is off.
When the newlyweds arrive at their new farm they discover a wacky old fellow creating a hangman’s noose on the front porch. It turns out that he is a newly retired hangman who has lost his job because the gas chamber has put him out of business. The last gangster that he hung had given the hangman his farm hideout, so the newlyweds discover that they have a guest until they can straighten out the ownership of the farm.
No sooner was that settled before a truck arrives and a casket is delivered to the farm house – the casket containing the body of gangster Honeyboy. The casket is placed in the parlor, and we then watch as a man in prison garb lifts the casket lid and gets out, disappearing in a hidden panel in the wall.
Our new bridegroom calls the local Police Chief and his deputy to come out and take away the casket, but when the Police Chief opens the lid to see the body, the casket is empty. Then the dead gangster’s henchmen and their girlfriends arrive to mourn their hanged leader. This honeymoon night will be one that our newlyweds will never forget . . . . If they survive! Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
