The Blushing Bride, The Farm-Boy Groom, and the Dead Gangster

What could be more fun than watching a newlywed couple in a big city hotel room on their honeymoon night? Farm boy Horace has just married his childhood sweetheart, and they went to a big New York City hotel for their honeymoon night.

This will not only be their honeymoon night, but their only night together for a long time. World War Two is raging, and Horace has been drafted by the Army, and will report for duty the next morning. One night of marital bliss is all that Horace and Millie will have, and they want to make the most of it.

One would think that a big, expensive New York City hotel would provide nothing but the best for our newlyweds, and the room is magnificent.

There are probably many surprises the first night a new husband and wife are together, but none like the surprise that Horace got when he crawled into bed next to the rumpled blanket covering his beloved Millie. Horace only has a few hours to share with his new wife before he leaves for the Army, and every minute counts.

Imagine his surprise after a bit of sweet talk when he pulled back the covers and discovers that the body under the covers is not his Millie. No, you see, Millie is still in the bathroom changing.

When Horace gently pulls back the covers to see his new wife, he discovers that a dead man is lying where his new bride should be. This honeymoon night will be one to remember, . . . or maybe not.

Happy Honeymoon, Horace! Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
