Love and Curses is a Merrie Melodies cartoon released to theaters on July 9, 1938. This short was directed by Ben Hardaway and Cal Dalton. The short is a parody of the boy rescues girl from Evildoer melodramas of the 1890s.
An old hero, Harold, is looking through a photo album with his wife, Emily and remember one picnic they had in the Gay 90s that was interrupted by villain Roger St. Clair, who tries to tempt Emily into going to the city and away from Harold. When that does not work, he takes her by force. Harold is still searching for her six months later. Meanwhile, Emily is forced to sing on the stage of Roger's bar with a barbershop quartet. Harold passes by and notices this. Roger beats up Harold, and ties Emily to the railroad tracks. Harold rescues her, and defeats Roger.
