Synopsis
V

It's 1937 and the Earl of Hareford has died leaving no apparent heir. The family members have gathered, eagerly waiting to hear how the estate will be split. However the family solicitor, Parchester, announces that he has tracked down an heir to both the family fortune and the family seat of Hareford Hall. The unlikely beneficiary is one Bill Snibson, a barrow boy from Lambeth.

Maria, Duchess of Dene, decides to tum Bill into a gentleman worthy of the Hareford name, despite the advice of Sir John Tremayne to simply pay him off. She also tries to get him to marry Lady Jaqueline, who is so eager for money and the title that she breaks off her engagement to the Hon. Gerald Bolingbroke. Despite Lady Jaqueline's advances, Bill is determined to marry his sweetheart from Lambeth, Sally Smith.

Sally does not want to ruin Bill's chances and tries to convince Bill that he is too good for her, despite loving him deeply. She even resorts to gatecrashing his party with a group of raucous Lambeth locals. However, everyone joins in and does The Lambeth Walk.

Despite having won over Sir John, Sally decides to leave Hareford and return to Lambeth. After drowning their sorrows, Bill and Sir John hatch separate plans to bring her back. Bill travels to Lambeth to find her but returns empty handed as Sir John has packed her off to a certain speech professor he knows!!

The Duchess decides to throw another party but Bill is not in the mood. The Duchess begins to realise how much Sally means to him and, in a reflective mood, accepts Sir John's proposal of marriage. Jaqueline also recognises her folly and returns to Gerald. With the party in full swing, Sally makes a second uninvited entrance and, displaying her new-found elegance, shows she is a suitable wife for an Earl.
