Storyline

The Carletons make a living as card sharps and finding new suckers to mooch off of. When their latest scam backfires, they are asked to leave Monte Carlo. At the train station, they meet a kind old woman named Miss Fortune. The elderly lady is very wealthy and very lonely. As a reward for saving her life after the train derails, Miss Fortune invites the Carletons to come live with her. The family hopes that by winning her affection, they can eventually be named sole beneficiaries in her will. But will a change of heart soften their mercenary feelings before that time comes?

Trivia

Legendary stage actress Laurette Taylor (Amanda Wingfield in the original 1945 Broadway production of "The Glass Menagerie") made a screen test for David O. Selznick for the role of Miss Fortune, eventually played in the film by Minnie Dupree. The screen test can be seen in the documentary Broadway: The Golden Age, by the Legends Who Were There (2003).

Great premise and marvellous cast.
12 May 2001 | by (Hollywood, Florida) – See all my reviews

Besides being a marvellous picture, which I saw when it reached New York, it had the Flying Wombat, a car which actually existed under the actual name; Phantom Corsair. My question is in two parts, The first; is there a copy of the film extant that I can buy or rent (like on tape). Secondly, does any car lover out there know what happened to the car? A year or two after the picture, I saw the car in an auto showroom on Broadway. The dealer had bought it for his son.
