Day Ma's Boys Done Went to Town to Rob the Bank Again, The

MELODRAMA. High in the hills of Arkansas, Ma’s boys have hatched a plan to rob the Vulture Rock bank. The only problem is that there is no bank in the town of Vulture Rock! The last time Ma’s boys tried to rob the “bank,” they robbed the livery stable, scared the heck out of the horses, and stole all the horse chips because they mistook them for silver dollars. This time, the boys mistake the county jail for the bank and end up stealing three womenfolk—a saloon owner, a switchboard operator, and the town gossip. The boys bring their prospective brides home to Ma, but when Ma inspects these uptown womenfolk and discovers they can’t cook, slop the hogs, or drag tree stumps out of a cornfield, she and her boys have some serious misgivings about the upcomin’ weddins’!
