Cast & Crew
The Innskilling Regiment from Dublin, Ireland arrives in Bath, England and is met by the 51st Regiment. Kitty Bellairs, a mischievous, flirtatious Irish beauty is the toast of the 51st, and when the Dublin Regiment arrives, their lieutenant, Lord Verney falls in love with her as well. Lady Julia, Kitty's friend, is heartbroken over her husband, Sir Jasper's affair with Lady Barbara. Kitty's advice is for Julia to make him jealous. After Sir Jasper, thinking that Verney is trifling with Julia, challenges him to a duel, both Kitty and Julia go to Verney's apartment to prevent a confrontation. Kitty helps Julia to escape and takes the blame for being discovered in Verney's room. Being found in a compromising situation results in Kitty being snubbed at a ball given by Bath society. Lady Julia eventually straightens everything out and Lt. Verney goes off to war knowing that Kitty truly loves him.
