The Red Chrysanthemum is a simple short romantic comedy about a pretty young woman whose favour is sought by two men. Unable to choose, she challenges her suitors to win her affections by delivering to her, her favorite flower. Though she delights in the many varieties that are delivered to her, she finally reveals that her favourite is the red Chrysanthemum. While one man heads back to the flower shop, the other has a cleverly romantic, but painful idea (Klaus MIng March 2015).
