MAUSOLEUM MAN

After his wife's sudden death, her husband fights his sister and a cemetery official to stay with her in the family mausoleum.

After Tony Aversa's wife is killed in a car crash, Tony takes up residence in the family mausoleum to be near her. When the owner of the cemetery, Virgil Stonesypher finds out about his new "resident," he pleads with Tony's sister, Vera, to help get him to leave. But Tony is adamant and refuses to leave. A few days later, Tony meets Gertrude Addams, who has injured herself while attending a burial. Tony takes Gertrude to his mausoleum, where she becomes attracted to him. After a pleasant afternoon - and a few martinis - Gertrude decides to stay with Tony, which only infuriates Stonesypher even more when he finds out, forcing him and Vera to find a way to force Tony to leave no matter what.
