Benny's at his comedic best in this amusing farce. Lord Fancourt "Babbs" Babberly (Benny) and his Oxford roommates Jack Chesney (Ellison) and Charley Wyckeham (Haydn in his film debut) must find a proper escort so their lady friends (Whelan, Baxter) will agree to visit. Babbs dons drag to impersonate Charley's maiden aunt (from Brazil--where the nuts come from) but finds himself fending off the romantic overtures of a couple of codgers (Cregar, Gwenn). Based on the play by Brandon Thomas.
