The Bashful Bachelor (1942)


“Lum Edwards (Chester Lauck) is annoyed with his partner in Pine Ridge’s Jot-em-Down general store Abner Peabody (Norris Goff) because Abner has swapped their delivery car for a racehorse. Lum is also too timid to propose to Geraldine (Zasu Pitts) so he involves Abner in a “rescue” effort which nearly gets both of them killed. They try again and this time Geraldine is impressed. Lun writes a proposal note but Abner, by mistake, delivers it to the Widder Abernathy (Constance Purdy) who has been ready to remarry for years. This puts Lum in a peck of trouble until the sheriff (Irving Bacon) appears with the Widders long-gone and hiding husband.”
