When the Upper Crust Crumbles . . .
For most of us there is nothing more delicious than to peek into the lives of a wealthy family with problems . . . the gossip . . . the scandal . . . the twisted plots that brothers and sisters scheme against the rest of the family . . . The daughter from the past that no one knows about . . . We are in for some great drama today, with some very unorthodox plot twists that will amaze and entertain! We first meet brother Robert and sister Roberta, riding their horses across their land towards their castle-home in the distance. We learn that regardless of the fine Hallston castle and the long family history, the family has been penniless until recently when their sister June married very wealthy British businessman Brian. Now there is money a-plenty and they are living in grand style once more. Of course they despise the wealthy husband of June and will scheme mightily to take control of the castle from wealthy Brian. Next we meet wealthy Brian's cousin Max, a young dashing hunk of a man recently arrived from Argentina to stay for a while with Brian and his new wife June at the castle. Wouldn't it be interesting if cousin Brian and wife June secretly loved each other? . . . Cool! . . . Now as the scheming and plotting begins in earnest wealthy husband Brian is taunted into riding a newly purchase horse with plenty of spirit and we are all horrified when Brian is thrown to the ground and becomes paralyzed . . . and just before his wife June and his cousin Max were going to tell him about their love for each other. What a sticky wicket this is becoming . . . The only thing worse might be if crippled Brian somehow accidentally discovered that his wife and his cousin are in love . . . ahhh . . . you guessed it . . . . He WILL discover that his wife is in love with his cousin . . . and then . . . it just blew my mind . . . The doctor gives Brian the final word on his prospects for walking again . . . and you guessed it . . . oops . . . . You did NOT guess what the doctor said to Brian . . . At least I did not . . . Things are really getting complicated now in a very unexpected way . . . . what a time for the arrival of a daughter that no one knows about from a past life . . . Before I finish let me whisper in your ear that you are correct if you think that you recognize the young lady playing the part of the long-lost daughter . . . You probably saw this beauty a few years after this movie in several James Bond adventures . . . Now go and pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm, melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
