The Ghost of Henry the Elkins
What would you do differently today if you knew that you would dying soon? You might die today or tomorrow or maybe the day after that. Your doctor predicts that you cannot survive more than four months at the most.
You are a man with a wife, a teenage daughter, your wife’s free-loading brother and Molly the maid. You have never been very successful in life, but you have one grand asset. Your grandfather, founder of the small town of Elkins, has left you one hundred acres of prime land on the east side of town. Maybe you can sell it for enough money to take care of your family after you are gone.
Okay, enough about the comedy plot, it is too complicated and too funny to say much more about it. Let me tell you about one of the minor actors. Fans of old television will recognize Molly the Maid as Granny on The Beverly Hillbillies, but Granny isn't the actor I want to tell you about today.
Milburn Stone only had a small part in this movie as the Vice President of a large airline company, but old movie fans will remember him as a character actor in many movies including the Tailspin Tommy airplane adventures —», and tv fans will recognize him as Doc Adams on Gunsmoke, which aired for twenty years and 635 different episodes, making the little known actor a superstar character actor recognized around the world. Milburn Stone appeared in every episode of Gunsmoke except for seven, when he was sidelined by a minor heart attack.
Milburn Stone married Jane Garrison in 1939 and divorced her in 1940. . . . And in 1941 they got married again, remaining a couple until his death in 1980. . . . THAT’S a love affair! Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
