The Talmadge sisters were huge stars during the silent era but all retired from films once the talkies arrived and are almost forgotten today.

In this film American Dorothy Adams (Constance Talmadge) is the sole heiress to her father’s scrub brush fortune but she has no intention of being romanced for her money after she arrives in London. An impoverished British Lord (Paul Menford) impersonates a doctor to woo the heiress. The Lord is in love but his business associate (Joe Diamond) is only interested in the money. A funny, charming film with the unforgettable Constance Talmadge, a favourite at Slapstick Festival and an actor whose comic timing is impeccable. Introduced by stand-up comedian Lucy Porter and with live piano accompaniment by John Sweeney.
