Reggie, the impish Marquis of Buckminster, has many friends and is happy with his present bachelor lifestyle. But his grandmother demands that he now get married to one of a few suitable women that she names, and have some children. Two of the women are twin sisters who are friends of his from another aristocratic family, so he visits them, and learns that they already have fiancés but commoners, against their family's wishes. If he can help them to marry the men they want, it will also shorten the list of candidates and maybe help him remain single so Reggie does everything he can to help them. Written by Anonymous

Harry: Oh, yes, it caught me all right.
Earl of Stokeshire: Weren't you surprised?
Harry: Never so knocked over in all my life!
Lady Rose Mary: But what did you say, Uncle?
Harry: I said, Bl-bless the children, they've bagged a brace of princes or grand-dukes, I'll be bound. Eh, my dears?
Lady Rose Mary: Well, Uncle, they're not exactly...
Lady Mary Rose: Oh, who cares about a title anyhow?
Harry: Mmm. Of course, of course... if you love him, it doesn't matter if he's called Thompson!
Tootles: [clearing throat] As a matter of fact, my name IS Thompson.

Sort of 'Four Weddings (minus a funeral)'
24 October 2000 | by (Ascot, England) – See all my reviews

Minor London Films comedy, chiefly interesting now because of the number of British actors it features who later went on to greater things. The plot concerns the Marquis of Buckminster (Roland Young), who must marry or be cut out of a rich relative's will. Instead he sets about marrying off all his friends to the eligible girls on his relative's hit-list in an attempt to save himself from such a ghastly fate. Only as the moon sets on the day of his friends' weddings does he finally find himself smitten...

Not as witty nor as farcical as it pretends to be, Young (later Mr Topper) gives a marvellous performance that makes it sort of worthwhile. Other notables include John Loder, Wendy Barrie (of The Saint, Falcon and Sherlock Holmes films), Joan Gardner (later Mrs Zoltan Korda), Maurice Evans (later Dr Zaius in Planet of the Apes) and a stunning Merle Oberon. Something perhaps for an older generation - or those deeply in love with early cinema

  • to savour, but an acquired taste for everybody else.
