The twain is bound to meet in any British film titled East is East. Henry Edwards plays a low-born fishmonger who falls into a "tub of butter," as it were. Henry (or is it 'Enry) inherits a fortune, utterly forgetting his sweetheart Florence Turner in favor of the high mucky-mucks of society. He eventually wises up and returns to Turner. At the bottom of the cast list is Edith Evans (long before she was Dame Edith Evans), cast as "The Aunt". Star Henry Edwards also directed East is East, adapting the scenario from the stage play by Phillip Hubbard and Gwendolen Logan.
