Wine, Women and Weddings

Little Midville hasn't had a wedding in over two years, thanks to Minerva Snodgrass and the Citizens League. The people of the town are kept locked in the past and young lovers are not allowed to be together without a chaperone, even when they go to the movies. Mrs. Snodgrass has a young daughter who is in love with Eddie, but old lady Snodgrass will not allow Eddie to even visit or talk to her daughter. Next door to Minerva Snodgrass lives old maid Pandora Polly, and Miss Polly tries to get Eddie and Barbara together without Minerva Snodgrass finding out. So we have two opposing forces in little Midville . . . old maid Pandora Polly who thinks the town should loosen up a bit and prim and proper Minerva Snodgrass who will have no truck with modern ways or love in the spring. There is one more character in this laugh-fest that you should know about . . . crazy funny Slim Summerville who is Pandora Polly's gardener and all-round kooky inventor of things that almost work. One day Pandora Polly remembers that her dear old dad used to go to the basement once in a while and when he came back upstairs he was always full of life and love for her mom, and he had told Pandora one day that he had a special bottle of wine in the basement that had magical powers. Pandora Polly decides to go to the wine cellar in the basement and find that bottle and share it with young Eddie and Barbara so that they will have the courage to run away from Minerva Snodgrass and get married. After forcing Slim to try several bottles of wine without success she finally discovers the special wine with humorous results. She turns into an amorous lady on the hunt for a man under the influence of the magical wine, and when she visits the town meeting turns everything upside down. Miss Polly gets the whole town to rebel against the strict town rules that have been stifling romance in the town and Minerva Snodgrass is in such a tizzy that she faints straight away. What to do . . . What to do . . . of course, give her a sip of the magical wine and turn her into a horny gal. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled on top and enjoy the show.
