The latest misfit whom Aunt Agatha has short-sightedly ordered Bertie to take under his wing is Cyril Bassington-Bassington, a young aristocrat whose mother has sent him across the Atlantic to cure him of his obsession with the theatre.It is the worse thing she could have done. Cyril goes to a Broadway show, gets involved with a chorus girl and becomes a star of the musical theatre himself touring across the States. Bertie also has to help portrait painter Corky with his love problems. Written by

Did You Know?
On the map of the USA showing the path of Cyril's touring show, they get to Tallahassee, Florida and the next town listed is "Pensacola, Alabama". Pensacola is in Florida. See more
I am familiar with the name Bassington-Bassington, sir. There are the Shropshire Bassington-Bassingtons the Hampshire Bassington-Bassingtons and, of course, the Kent Bassington-Bassingtons.
Ah, so, the world's pretty well stacked up on Bassington-Bassingtons then.
Tolerably so, sir.
No chance of a sudden shortage, I mean, ha?
Presumably not, sir.
