Based on a novel by Samuel Lover, Handy Andy stars Peter Coleman in the title role. The hero is a 19th-century Irish stable boy who longs for adventure. Posing as his cousin, Andy rescues a pretty young lass from kidnappers. It turns out that the girl is Andy's own sister, and in order to conceal his true identity, he is forced to marry his sibling! But fear not: things aright themselves before the censors can have their way. The script was prepared by Elliot Stannard, one of the most talented artisans in the lackluster British silent-film industry. The 1934 Will Rogers vehicle Handy Andy is not a remake.
