Storyline

Stuart Erwin plays a small-town real estate agent who owns much property which, for several generations, has failed to sell even while the town has grown. It becomes known, except to Erwin, that the property is being considered for the new airport and the owner will make a small fortune. He is swarmed upon by an unscrupulous swami (Russ Vincent)and his equally-crooked business partner, and Erwin is soon convinced that he hasn't long to live. With his life a mess, he leaves home and family. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Save yourself from disappointment - skip this movie
30 April 2012 | by PaularocSee all my reviews

Since I am a big fan of Glenda Farrell's Torchy Blane series and often find Stu Erwin amusing, I recorded this off of TMC recently. I sometimes give a movie a bit of leeway if the print quality of the movie is poor or even just fair. Obviously, this print quality was excellent – it is the movie that is poor. Stu Erwin plays a small town Realtor (Elkins) who stubbornly hangs on to a parcel of hand handed down from his grandfather. In addition to his gullible and bland wife (Farrell), the household includes his lazy schmuck of a brother-in-law and a dippy housekeeper. Actually, the housekeeper played by Irene Ryan is the only even mildly amusing character. I'm okay with the movie making no sense but that it also is boring and a waste of Erwin's, Farrell's and Ryan's talent is most unfortunate. Don't waste your time with this one.
