Leslie Henson stars as Lord Pye, a pompous member in good standing of his local Purity League. Lord Pye would not be so complacently puritanical if he knew that his stepdaughter Benita (Frances Day), whom he has never met, is a saucy cabaret dancer. Briefly stranded in London when he misses his train, His Lordship wanders into the very nitery where his stepdaughter is performing. Still unaware of Benita's identity, he loosens up and begins outrageously (but harmlessly) flirting with the girl. Meanwhile, the new Lady Pye (Marie Lohr), Benita's mother, shows up in London unannounced to visit her daughter. Oh Daddy, indeed!
