Movie Info

Businessman Edmund Gilbert Edmund Gwenn and his daughter Lilian Wendy Barrie are a well-to-do father and daughter caught in the down-draft of the British economic depression -- he's a financier without finance, and they're both struggling to put on a big front as their resources disappear. When Paul Martin (Robert Donat), a once-wealthy young man trying to survive as an employee of the gas-works, shows up to turn off their utilities, it seems like the end -- but Paul takes a fancy to Lilian and decides to leave their gas and power on. And Mr. Gilbert suddenly takes a fancy to Paul when the younger man discovers that an escaping thief who bumped into him on the underground has left $100,000 on Paul's person. Now Edmund wants the young man as his partner in a new venture, to attract other investors, and matters become more comically complicated still as the byzantine world of romance and finance intertwine.
