Three short comedies by Ernest Thompson. In A GOOD TIME, a kooky New York career girl gets an unexpected visit from the California highway patrolman who stopped her for speeding several years earlier. In return for not giving her a ticket she promised him a “good time” if he ever came to New York—and he is here to collect. However, things don’t turn out quite as she fears. (1 man, 1 woman.) In THE CONSTITUENT, a tough-minded, foul-mouthed old Maine curmudgeon, who is given to writing abusive letters to his senator, suddenly finds himself face-to-face with his nemesis. The two men, oddly enough, find much in common—but then the fur begins to fly again, with hilarious results. (2 men.) In TWINKLE, TWINKLE, a bored housewife who has written a seductive fan letter to her favorite soap opera actor is dumbfounded to find her hero on her doorstep. Once she (and her husband) recover from their shock (and her husband goes bowling) their relationship takes on a hilarious see-saw nature, with the possibility of promised delights left in the balance. (2 men, 1 woman.)
