"Country Cousin" (1936) [Series] - Monty Pencils

Boy, I really didn't like Monty when I first saw this film. While growing up, every once and a while I would be put into social situations with kids from "Country Club" families and, it seemed to me, that they would go out of their way to point out my ignorance in the "social graces." To me, Monty personified those self-absorbed creeps.

But as the film rolled along, Monty did redeem himself by taking care of the intoxicated Abner.

However, as I re-read what I just typed, I guess I still don't care for Monty. From my perspective, whenever Monty looked down his nose at Abner, he was looking down his nose at me.... Damn, I hate all this garbage I lug around...
