Melodrama

In this stylish satiric melodrama, Aunt Absinthe hopes pretty Chastity has sold enough Easter eggs to meet the mortgage payment. Alas, it isn't Easter and the dyed-egg business is very slow. The villain is after their humble homestead. As he confesses to the audience, "'Twas my recent discovery of gold, silver, nickel, lead, plutonium, oil and buried treasure beneath,chuckle,this very room!" Terence Truelung, breathing heavily, is soon to the rescue, but Terence is also attracted to another girl. Seeing this, poor Chastity cries, "O gruesome spectacle! O pageant of horror!" Despite this and other indignities that can upset a girl,such as being tied to railroad tracks,it all turns out happily. One int. set.
