"All that glitters ain't gold" is the moral of this story of marriage and materialism in the rural south during the Great Depression.
Matrimony could not have been better for Joe and Missie May Banks. A year into their marriage they were able to have a home on the outskirts of town and money saved up for their future, which included children. That is until Otis D. Slemmons moves into town, a big shot from the big city who opens an ice cream parlor. He is a rich, well-dressed, smooth talker unlike any other man in their small town.
A husband, a wife, and an outsider become interconnected in Zora Neale Hurston's The Gilded Six Bits.
Total running time for the film is 28 minutes 55 seconds.
