Financially embarrassed, twittish Lord Richard Sandridge (Richard Cooper) is forced to put his Mayfair house up for rent. The lucky tenant turns out to be Sylvia Garland (Doris Secombe), an attractive widow. Later on, Lord Richard is framed on a theft charge and forced to go into hiding. With Sylvia's help, he poses as a butler in his own house. If a romance didn't arise from all this, the audience might have started a riot. Based on a play by Sidney Blow and Douglas Hoare, Lord Richard in the Pantry is put briskly through its familiar paces by veteran comedy director Walter Forde (who probably could have played the leading role as well).
