In this British comedy, a proper teacher at a private girl's school secretly elopes with a wrestler. To conceal the wedding, she has her twin sister, a trick rider for the circus, take her place in school. The circus performer turns out to be a natural teacher and before her sister comes back, is promoted to headmistress. Keep a sharp eye out for Vivien Leigh in her feature film debut. She plays a school girl and though she only had one line, a number of close-ups centered on her.
