Jack and Susan in 1933
A Few Facts about Jack & Susan:
Regardless of what the calendar says, they are always, eternally, 27 years old.
They are destined for each other like Hepburn and Tracy, Dagwood and Blondie, Nick and Nora. But they almost never know it.
They always acquire a shaggy white dog.
It’s 1933 and the depth of the Depression, but are Jack and Susan depressed? Well, maybe a little. After all, they’re both married to the Wrong People. These People are not quite so Wrong that Jack and Susan would like to bump them off, but when one of them turns up dead, Susan becomes the cops’ favorite suspect. Thank heaven Jack (and the intrepid Scotty and Zelda) are on hand to prevent a terrible miscarriage of justice!
