My Mother Married Wilbur Stump

1985, 27:34 min, b&w and color, sound

In 1972, Sweeney's mother eloped with piano-bar singer Wilbur Stump after a three-month courtship, to the general shock and disapproval of her family. Their relationship, and Wilbur's induction into the family, is the focus of this comic, poignant work, in which Sweeney combines photographs and home movies, with a central interview with his mother.
