Cast: 4m., 5w. As lawyer Seymour Mead finishes reading Ridgely Randolph's will to the assemblage of greedy relatives and servants, the treasure hunt begins! You see, several generations of Randolphs have hidden millions of dollars within the house, and the family has been murdering each other over it ever since. Now diabolical Uncle Ridgely has hidden $20 million and the land grant to his estate, and the terms of his will give the family only 24 hours to find the money and the grant or go penniless. The ghosts of the murdered relatives are doomed to wander through the passageways behind the paneling forever unless the mystery is solved and their spirits are released. Three of the ghosts pitch in to help the undeserving living as they tear the place apart in this fast, funny and fresh comedy. The humor ranges from witty drawing-room dialogue to all-out slapstick in this hearty madcap romp. Do they find the land grant in time? Who ends up with the money? And does everyone live—and die—happily ever after? The results will surprise you! One int. set.
