Novello plays a homeless Russian prince who meets Gladys Wallis (Ursula Jeans) in the maze at Hampton Court and moves in with her family. His presence in this normal family home has chaotic effects on the whole household. Also starring Ida Lupino as Glad's sister, Ada and Eliot Makeham & Minnie Rayner as her parents, the film was directed by the most prolific director in UK film history, Maurice Elvey.
