Product Description

Stella (1950)

Director:

Claude Binyon

Writers:

Claude Binyon, Doris Miles Disney (novel)

Stars:

Ann Sheridan, Victor Mature, Leif Erickson

Ann Sheridan is Stella, a strong, level headed woman, working for the local insurance salesman, saddled with a family of leeches, including her two lazy brothers-in-law, Carl (David Wayne) and Don (Frank Fontaine) who work in their resort community four months each year and collect unemployment the rest of the year. When her mother, uncle, sisters and their husbands go out for a picnic one afternoon, the drunken uncle starts a fight with Carl, trips on a tree root, and strikes his head on a rock. The family decides that no one will believe they didn't kill Uncle Joe, so bury him in a field and go home. An unlikely beginning to a comedy, but hilarity ensues after Uncle Joe's lady friend reports him missing. Stella finds out what really happened and is sucked into the cover-up. Things are fine until the police chief reports that Uncle Joe's body has been found on a railroad track; when the Carl and Don find out that Uncle Joe was insured for $20,000, they decide to identify the body, even though they know it can't be Uncle Joe. Victor Mature, meanwhile, is a claims adjuster for the insurance company. He has come to town to check on Stella's boss (and fiancé), and takes an immediate interest in Stella. He checks the dental records on the "John Doe", and discovers that it couldn't have been Uncle Joe. That settles that -- until the next unidentified body washes up on a beach. The "boys" keep getting in deeper and deeper, dragging an unwilling Stella along with them. Stella, meanwhile, has fallen for Jeff (Mature), but her fiancé is not about to give her up so easily, especially after she confides the family secret to him.
