Pretty weird stuff--and I am surprised it was preserved after all these years.
28 June 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film is part of a DVD set entitled "Treasures III"--a set of four DVDs all about social issues and reform. The second disk (where you'll find this one) is about women's issues in particular.

This film is part of Heart Movietone News. It's a short interview with a woman who is offering to sell herself in marriage for $10,000 to save her parents' family farm. Her two brothers had been killed in accidents and her father quite old. Oddly, she got MANY responses of men offering her the money! I guess she was kind of cute. I would really love to know what happened! And, unfortunately, the included commentary track does NOT know what happened with this woman of the marriage.
