Storyline

Richard Sutton and Linda Pearson are secretly engaged but unable to marry because of financial problems. Crooked promoter Gibbons offers Richard a deal but, in order to get rid of him, Richard says a rich uncle in Brazil has died and left him a fortune. The news soon spreads all over town and perks up his wealthy-and-ailing grandmother and her doctor warns Richard against telling her the truth. Granny Sutton tricks him into an engagement with a beautiful young nitwit, Gwenny Miller, of whom she is very fond. Barbara Cartwright, daughter of the town's richest man, suggests she has an idea to get him out of his difficulty and Richard, suffering from an overdose of sleeping pills, visits her. He is too sleepy to realize that her plans calls for marrying her instead, and when her father catches them in an embrace, Richard finds himself engaged to a third woman. Linda walks out and Richard goes on a drinking spree and wakes up in the apartment of playboy Chester Wannamaker, who had lent ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Eight Arms to Hold Neil Hamilton
6 July 2010 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Neil Hamilton (as Richard "Dick" Sutton) wants to marry fiancée Barbara Reed (as Linda Pearson) right away, but she thinks they should wait until he has more money. Meanwhile, Mr. Hamilton is being pursued by June Lang (as Gwendolyn "Gwenny" Miller) and Joyce Compton (as Barbara Cartwright), who also consider themselves engaged to Hamilton; they want a quick wedding. Then, a fourth woman turns up, and her gangster brother insists Hamilton marry Marlo Dwyer (as Lorraine O'Reilly). As a subplot, Hamilton may or may not be a millionaire. This all may sound exciting, but it's not. Debuting character actor Fred Sherman (as Charlie Blakewell) does a all right in the buddy role. Hamilton is seen here between his 1920s silent stardom and 1960s "Batman" role.
