About CORIANDER & A PENNY’S WORTH OF LONESOME: When vaudeville performer Coriander Simm is plucked from the stage, she has no idea what lies ahead performing as Valentino’s last love during his 1926 wake in NYC. Add an over-protective stepbrother with more than brotherly love on his mind and an amorous ‘puss-pitcher’ from United Artists, plus a rival movie star intent on usurping Coriander’s position as the bereaved suitor and you’ve got a loving tribute to the films of yesteryear and the Tin Pan Alley.
