The Awful Fate of Melpomenus Jones

Top of page

Based on the Stephen Leacock short story, this amusing film, animated and set to toe-tapping ragtime music, tells of a polite and timid young curate with a major shortcoming. He just could not bring himself to say goodbye, and this was to cause him great grief and considerable consternation. Melpomenus Jones's troubles began on the first day of his vacation when he went to visit friends, and somehow stayed and stayed, until, on the last day of his holiday, he finally departed in an unexpected way!
