Synopsis

The discovery of a revolutionary new vitamin prompts Lord Worthing to send his attorney, Henry Honeycutt, across the Atlantic to interest American breadmakers in the product. Honeycutt recruits baker Hiram Draper to test the product, and Draper and his bride sail to England. At the Worthing estate, Hiram's sleepwalking wife Elinor startles the Lord's horse, causing a nasty fall. Meanwhile, Dr. Dereski plays the two men against each other until, after an onslaught of double crossing, the real inventor shows up and the families settle their differences.

Notes

The plot information for this film came from reviews which provided inconclusive information. In 1930, Fox produced another version of So This Is London directed by John Blystone and starring Will Rogers, Irene Rich, Frank Albertson and Maureen O'Sullivan (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1921-30; F2.5206).
