Veteran character actor Henry Beckman essays the title role in the Canadian Merry Wives of Tobias Rourke. The victim of a confidence scam, the wealthy Tobias finds himself wed to both Judy Gault and Linda Sorenson. Thinking fast, Tobias passes off one of his spouses as his daughter-in-law. Things get dicier from there on in, thanks to the chicanery of con artist Paul Bradley. When the plot threatens to get too complex for its own good, narrator Michael Magee straightens the audience out.
