A true tall tale
I love the smell of money in the morning.
Based on true events that happened way back in 1938, this character-driven piece features strong performances. A reclusive old man decides to hold his funeral party while he is still alive, as he wants to hear what people have to say about him, as well as revealing a few secrets of his own. The local undertaker, smelling easy money, is more than happy to oblige, and helps persuade all the townsfolk to attend by raffling off the 'deceased' man's property. It will be a party to remember ....
