Mrs. O'Brien is eager to be accepted as part of high society, and she is hosting a fox hunt as part of her plans. Her husband and daughter, though, have no interest in society affairs. Mrs. O'Brien wants to invite Lord Abernathy to the hunt, and she mentions this to the 'society pilot' who is advising her. But this woman and a confederate are merely using Mrs. O'Brien and the hunt for their own purposes. When Lord Abernathy is unavailable, they convince an ambitious young man to impersonate him, so that they can proceed with their scheme. Written by
AMONG THOSE PRESENT at a lavish country house weekend is a penniless young hat check attendant impersonating a British aristocrat.
Harold has some very funny moments in this highly enjoyable film. Whether regaling the snobs with imaginary fox hunting exploits, attempting to ride the killer horse Dynamite, or madly scrambling about the estate in search of his missing pants, Harold is never anything less than hilarious.
Aggie Herring & James Kelly are lots of fun as a grand society dame and her down-to-earth Irish husband. Lovely Mildred Davis plays their daughter, a sweet Girl unimpressed by her parents' wealth.
Robert Israel has composed an excellent film score which perfectly complements Harold's antics on the screen.
