Synopsis:
Gower flashes back to a time when he & Marge lived in a dumpy little one-room
apartment and were flat broke while he tried to sell a show he'd
written. Marge's dad introduces them to a backer named Feets Fortunata. He
offers them $15,000, but wants the show to be called "Wildflower Girls of 1926".
This almost queers the deal, as Gower wants it to be called "Requiem of Rhythm".
However, money wins and Gower gives in. [RL]
