Poorly produced attempt at comedy has two broke cousins, Horton and Oliver, inheriting a British mansion. This sets off a plan by Oliver to get Horton married to wealthy society woman Todd, and Oliver goes about the task of making herself and Horton appear rich in order to attract the

woman. But the plan backfires, so they take what little money they have left, hock the furniture, and open a restaurant in the mansion, with the marriage coming off anyway. Except for an occasional laugh, the film falls flat. The badly miscast actors can do little with the bungling script.
