~Jack Mulhall & Marguerite Clark~
~Plot Synopsis~
This amusing little comedy was based on the play by Ernest Denny. When Anthony (Orral Humphrey),
Lord Crackenthorpe, an English entomologist, invites Mrs. O'Mara (Lillian Leighton), the widow of an
Irish zoology professor, and her daughter Peggy (Marguerite Clark) to live on his estate while they
collaborate on a study of the spider, he incurs the consternation of his mother, Lady Crackenthorpe
(Maggie Fischer). Fearing that Anthony will become infatuated with Peggy, the snobbish Lady
Crackenthorpe persuades Jimmy Keppel (Jack Mulhall) to court the young woman, unaware that Anthony
is already in love with Mrs. O'Mara. Oblivious to Jimmy's advances, Peggy spends her time writing plays.
Upon learning that Anthony and her mother will not wed until she herself has married, Peggy leaves
home on the pretense of eloping with Jimmy. She arrives in the city, where her purse is stolen. Penniless,
Peggy spends the night in Jimmy's empty apartment. The next morning, Jimmy enters his flat and is
amazed to find Peggy and is further surprised to read the announcement of their marriage in the
newspaper. Soon after, Lady Crackenthorpe arrives furious; the news that the marriage never took place
fails to assuage her anger, but Peggy saves the day by deciding that she really loves Jimmy and will marry
him "all of a sudden."
