The Earl of Gilleigh ( Harold Lockwood ), whose dyspepsia has been severely aggravated by the news that his ill-tempered wife Sophronia ( Bessie Eyton ) is due to arrive from abroad, is startled by the noise of a burglar and enters the room to find his long-lost brother, Warren Ellis ( Harold Lockwood ), voraciously helping himself to a meal. Warren accepts the Earl's proposal that the two trade identities, and while he remains in Gilleigh, the Earl retreats to his country estate. After meeting Sophronia, however, Warren quickly follows his brother to the country, where he is entranced by a lovely shepherdess named Rosalind ( Pauline Curley ). Sophronia also travels to the estate, and mistaking the lovesick Warren for her husband, believes that she has lost the Earl's love. Through her change of disposition, she regains her husband's affections, while Warren wins Rosalind.
This 1918 silent comedy/romance was produced by Yorke Film Corporation, starring Harold Lockwood in a dual role. The survival status of is listed as unknown, which sadly suggests it may now be a lost silent film.
