British comic actor Johnny Butt (that couldn't have been a stage name!) stars in Head of the Family. Butt plays a bullying oaf who makes life miserable for his new wife (Daisy England). To get even, the bride hires a rowdy sailor (Charles Ashton) to pose as her long-lost son. Finally meeting his match, the husband mends his ways in a hurry, while the sailor finds romance in the form of a local girl (Cynthia Murtaugh). The supporting cast of Head of the Family includes Moore Marriott, who achieved worldwide fame in the 1930s as toothless old Harbottle in the Will Hay comedies.
