Love Potion for the Citizens Decency League
Little Midville hasn’t had a wedding in over two years, thanks to Minerva Snodgrass and the Citizens Decency 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, head of the decency league, 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 the prim and proper Minerva Snodgrass who will have no truck with modern morals. 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. This certain bottle of wine was a powerful love potion, turning anyone who drank it into a love machine in search of a lover. If Miss Polly can find that bottle, the little village might just become a hotbed of love. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled on top and enjoy the show.
