Summary, etc.:
(Three-cornered moon, 1933) Laughter is the best medicine in tough times, and that is certainly the case for Elizabeth and her three brothers who are forced to find work after their eccentric family's fortune is lost. (Maid of Salem, 1937) Inspired by the true-life Salem witch trials, an independent young woman is accused of casting evil spells by the Puritan townsfolk during one of the most notorious periods in American history. (I met him in Paris, 1937) All is fair in love and fashion as a successful designer must choose between three suitors: a creative playwright, a dashing playboy, and a hometown boy. (Bluebeard's eight wife, 1938) The daughter of a destitute aristocrat is determined to teach her millionaire groom a lesson when she learns that their wedding day is not his first trip down the aisle. (No time for love, 1943) A working class man falls for a sophisticated fashion photographer, but the picture is not pretty when he loses his job and she hires him to be her assistant. (The egg and I, 1947) A new bride reluctantly says "I do" to her husband's plan to leave their life in the city and raise chickens on a dilapidated farm located miles from civilization.
