Greek filmmaker Vangelis Melissinos directed this farcical comedy showcase for the slapstick talents of rubber-faced comedian Frangiskos Manellis. Manellis plays the adopted son of a grocer (Periklis Christoforidis) who wants him to marry his gangly, pop-eyed old maid daughter (Tayeti). Of course, Manelli is in love with the grocer's other daughter (Ioanna Mourouzi), a beautiful young woman who is, unfortunately, already engaged. The usual deceptions, chases, and contrived situations ensue, but it's all in good fun and perfect for audiences who never seem to tire of such shenanigans.Nikos Thiveos co-stars with Yiorgos Valentzas and Maria Polychronidou.
