Vacancy in Paradise

John Kirkpatrick

Published by Samuel French Inc

Large Mixed Cast
The cabins at Paradise Glen where Wally stops to use the phone are run down

He sees Ellen, the owner's daughter, and embarks on a campaign to put the place back on its feet

There have already been weddings at the glen, so Wally advertises romance in a big way

Women flock but men are scarce and Wally's efforts to get people to marry for publicity purposes prove disastrous, especially when he promotes a match between the daughter of the banker who holds the mortgage and a hobo

There are also two Boston librarians who take up Hula dancing, a sailor who has too many girls, his jealous fiancee who nearly wrecks the place, an out spoken nurse, a hired man who isn't a hired man

And Ellen's scatter brained mother who is an old flame of the banker's.
