Death and I, we two
From the life of a ne'er-do-well, legacy-hunter and gambler. Engelbert Hotz muddles through life somehow, as carol-singer, harvest-worker and model for extra-small sizes. Not until he is introduced to the company assembled by Uncle Henry, celebrating his 70th birthday, as his universal heir, does Engelbert take fresh hope – "You'll be looked after". But then there is not even enough money for burial-clothes...
