amusing comedy short, even though clichéd
17 May 2005 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

A ticker-tape spells out a man's doom: he's lost his investments. His girlfriend, who is very well off, offers him her finances, but he won't have it. A telegram is sent that he is due an inheritance if he is married before noon. She rushes out in her car with a priest in tow to meet him, while he tries proposing to every woman in sight.

It's an amusing comedy, not uproariously funny, but cute. "Marry by a certain time, or forfeit your inheritance" was probably an old plot device even when this was made, and yet it's still around. Here, though, it's the woman's attempt to save the pride of the man she loves. A bit embarrassing that he didn't think to call her when he got the telegram - I don't know if she'd be happy to learn he tried proposing to everyone he encountered.
