Cast & Crew
While Lady Beulah Bonnell of Twicket on Topping, Sussex, goes bankrupt, her niece Cecily Withers receives flowers from Dick Garfield, son of an American billionaire. Beulah and her brother, Sir Reginald Withers, sail to America to find work. On board the boat, Dick proposes to Cecily, but she refuses him. In America, Reginald is tricked into buying a speakeasy and names it Little Twicket on Topping. Bootleggers Nutty Bolton and Keyhole McKluskey then insist that Reginald pay for his quota of liquor by 10:30 that night. Before the deadline, Reginald pays people to come to his club in the hope of selling his investment to unsuspecting capitalist Mr. Stephens. He mistakes Stephens for a policeman, however, and when Beulah tells him American cops must be bought off, Reginald tells Stephens the crowd is fake so as to pay less for police protection. Stephens, who was about to buy the club, rips up his check and leaves laughing. Garfield, in attendance with Dick and Cecily, gives Reginald $500 just minutes before 10:30. When he learns Reginald owns the place, however, Garfield accuses him of being a fortune hunter and is thrown out of the club. While the families feud, Beulah insults Dick in order to get him to fight for Cecily. Meanwhile, Beulah has transformed the club into the respectable Boots and Saddle. When Reginald refuses to buy Bolton's cheap liquor, the bootleggers fill ginger ale bottles with liquor and deliver cases of them. That night, the club is filled with upper class clientele whom Beulah has invited. Garfield arrives to get Dick, but gets very drunk on "ginger ale," allowing Dick and Cecily to escape and elope. The married couple returns when they learn the police are about to raid the place. Just after Beulah sells to Stephens, the police arrive, and Dick confesses he actually bought the club for Cecily. At the police station, they find out the bootleggers framed them, after which the police escort Cecily and Dick to their honeymoon.
