Excellent movie!!!!!!
9 June 2005 | by (Osceola, Arkansas) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie yesterday morning at 6 AM on TCM during the celebration of Alexis Smith's Birthday Marathon.

Its about a widow Elinor Bentley (Alexic Smith) who seemingly can get to her wedding day dued to the fact her grooms to be get canned before the day comes.

So Elinor's grand mother sends out a add for 1000 bux for any man to be engaged with Elinor for 31 days.

A man named by Alexander Downing (Wayne Morris) who is called "Lucky" applies for the ad and takes the job not knowing that this woman is known as "The Kiss of Death Girl" He brings along his valet Clarence (The Infamous Willie Best) along with him to assist him for the monthly duty to achieve the 1 grand.

The rest of the movie is very funny, spooky, and a sort of mystery with it.

If people loves movies such as this, then I'd look it up on ebay and purchase it!!!!!
