Posted on February 29, 2016 by Keith Bohnet
Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love with girl, who is socially far more upwardly mobile
than he. Girl secretly loves boy (a big no-no!), but her father (who happens to be
boy's boss) has arranged for her to marry another man of rank and status. Man of rank
and status arrives with his entourage of sisters, cousins, and aunts to meet girl.
Girl tries to flee with boy but is foiled by a one-eyed villain. A lowly traveling
saleslady is madly in love with the girl's father, but cannot marry him because he
is above her station and class. She confesses later to "baby farming" and everything
