Cast & Crew
Lulu, the bishop's daughter, and Tom, the Duke of Bilgewater's nephew, are in love and want to marry. Their relatives oppose the marriage, however, because Lulu's marriage contract with a curate has been signed and Tom is engaged to his ugly cousin, Lady Mary. Lulu and Tom elope to America and look for work. Lulu gets a secretarial job working for Mr. Lester, a theatrical agent, but Tom must rescue her when Lester makes advances toward her. The next day, they go to an employment agency and are hired out as butler and maid at the home of her former employer. When Tom encounters a burglar robbing the household, he fights the intruder, ends up with the loot, and is accused of the crime. After he goes to jail, Lulu gets another job in a hotel restaurant. There, a French chef propositions her, and to escape him, she disguises herself as a bellboy. She overhears two lawyers discussing Tom's case, and learns that Tom is heir to the family fortune, because the duke has died. Finally, she secures Tom's freedom and they return to England to claim his fortune.
