In "Two Horse Parlay" a nephew tries to fool his blind aunt into believing he is a concert pianist.
With no other way to come up with the cash, Johnny puts in a call to his wealthy Aunt Mita, who thinks that he is in New York City training to be a concert pianist. In desperation, he tells her a lie about urgently needing $4,000 to train in Paris with a famous piano teacher.
Aunt Mita tells him that first she would like to hear him play and that she wants him to come for a visit.
Johnny hasn't been near a piano in quite some time, so he asks him fiance to come along and play piano for him. Since Aunt Mita is blind, she won't really know it isn't Johnny.
If that doesn't work, maybe her weak heart will give out...
