Item Details

A romantic comedy set in 1905 on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, "The Golden Boys", is the story of three retired sea captains who keep house together as a way to moderate the loneliness of their retirements. As the story begins, chaos reigns in the house; dirty dishes, dust and disorder have become their bane. Together they hatch a plan to solve the problem: they flip coins, and the loser must get married and take the other two in as boarders. The three captains are Zebulon "Zeb" Hedge (David Carradine), Perez Ryder (Bruce Dern), and Jeremiah ("Jerry") Burgess (Rip Torn). Jerry loses the coin toss, and they run an advertisement in a Boston newspaper to entice a prospective bride.
