The British Confetti was the first film produced by Teddington Studios under their "quota" arrangement with Hollywood's First National. Musical-comedy favorite Jack Buchanan stars as Count Andrea della Zorro, a fortysomething Spanish aristocrat. In love with Dolores (Annette Benson), the Count allows his head to be turned by teenaged vamp Roxane (Audrey Sayre). This fits into the plans of Roxane's aunt, the Grand Duchess Maxixe (Sydney Fairbrother), who hopes to gain access to the Count's fortune. In the end, the Count returns to Dolores, but not to worry: the Grand Duchess herself falls for a humble confetti-cutter, who turns out to be her childhood sweetheart, and a wealthy one to boot.
