James Knight is Nicky in this flat British romantic tale. Wealthy Nicky is in love with equally wealthy cousin Trixie Happinleigh (Marjorie Villis). Halfway through the picture, both boy and girl lose their respective fortunes. It is then that they discover how much they really love and need each other. Evidently, director/writer Arthur Rooke, who adapted The Education of Nicky from a novel by May Wynn, thought he'd get laughs out of the characters' costumes and silly surnames.
