Storyline

Dolly is pregnant and Jack jobless so he agrees to a proposition to make money, from Manners, who wants to buy a house from Lord Calderbeck. Jack, posing as a parvenu car parts tycoon, will act as front man. At the house he meets Freddy, Calderbeck's nephew and heir, though his Lordship resents him as he survived the war, unlike Calderbeck's sons. Freddy is suspicious of Jack but the merry widow Jane Cromer, Freddy's fiancée, is partial to a bit of rough and climbs into Jack's bed. Ultimately Jack persuades her to marry Freddy and, thanks to inside information from Billy, who is working on his Lordship's land, gets a good sale for the house with a healthy commission for himself. However he learns that Dolly has had a miscarriage. Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

Although set in the early 1920s (well before talking movies) repeated references are made to Tarzan. While this would be fine if referring to Edgar Rice Burroughs' novels (the first of which was published before the War), it is plain that Jack and Jane are swapping banter about Johnny Wiesmuller's portrayal in the talkies ("Me Tarzan, you Jane", which he never actually said in the films, or the Tarzan call he made famous) which did not start until 1932.
