The Gold-Digger and the Chris Cross Artist

Black Comedy is humor weaved with dark, taboo, hint of evil situations. This story is filled with murder, passion, theft, deception, blackmail and infidelity . . . . All with a hint of ironic humor. In a comedy the players often travel to the edge of disaster but at the last second are brought humorously to success and good times. In a black comedy the players travel to the edge of disaster, and just when you think that something good will happen, they fall devastatingly into more disaster.

As our adventure opens we meet Edward G. Robinson, who is Christopher ‘Chris’ Cross. Chris Cross is a lovable lonely loser . . . He has been working as a cashier for a large company for twenty-five years and the boss is throwing him a lavish party, and giving him a gold watch in consideration for his years of work as a lowly paid cashier at a large New York company.

On his way home from the celebration dinner Chris gets lost and winds up in a seedy neighborhood and suddenly he hears a girl screaming. Chris looks up the street and sees a man beating on his girlfriend. Chris gallantly rushes to the young girl’s aid, hitting the fellow with his umbrella before recoiling in fear that the man will beat him to a pulp.

The man is Dan Duryea, playing the part of Johnny Prince, a slick young fellow in search of big money and fast times, as long as it doesn’t involve work of any kind.

The girl is Joan Bennett, playing the part of Kitty ‘lazy legs’ March. Kitty is head-over-heels in love with Johnny, and she works nights to keep him in cigarettes and food.

While Chris runs to find a policeman Johnny gets up and runs away. Kitty tells the cop and Chris that the fellow was a mugger and is now long gone. Lonesome Chris gallantly offers to walk her home, and they wind up sharing a drink in the bar under her apartment.

Their conversation leads Kitty to believe that Chris is a millionaire, not a poor working stiff. Later Johnny convinces Kitty to flirt with Chris and turn him into her ‘Sugar Daddy’ . . . . And lonely, lonesome, impoverished Chris falls hook, line and sinker for the beautiful gold-digging girl.

The misunderstandings and ironic twists are just beginning, and it will be a long steep downward spiral . . . . Black Comedy . . . . You will think that the twists are ironically humorous, but they are so tragic and devastating that you will not laugh. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
