Entertaining But Lightweight

"The Dark Boy" is a ghost story about a child who won't rest in peace until he sees that his father has stopped mourning and gone on with his life. A young school teacher in pioneer setting, sees a boy with dark features, peering in the windows of the schoolhouse at night. She asks him to come in but he runs. One day, a handsome farmer who seems angry and depressed comes with his child to school. He tells the teacher that his child is his responsibility and not to expect attendance every day. It turns out that this man's child died when he fell from a ladder at the school. The man is a widower and is having quite a bad time. The proof comes with his ability to see what is happening.

"Keep in Touch-We'll Think of Something" features a man who has seen a beautiful woman in his dreams. He goes to the ridiculous extent of reporting a stolen car and identifying the woman to the police. After they do an artist's sketch, she is identified by a traffic cop. They get together and share their thoughts. It turns out she is very rich and in an unsatisfying marriage. What happens is pretty ludicrous. Everything is so far fetched that virtually all credibility goes out the window.
