Hollywood favorites Charles Farrell and Gregory Ratoff head the cast of the British romantic comedy Falling In Love. The film's real star, however, is young Mary Lawson, here making her cinema debut. The plot concerns a famous film star (Farrell) who seeks shelter from his mobs of fans by hiding out on the top of a London double-decker bus. Alas, he hasn't the proper fare, so our hero must rely upon the kindness of strangers -- or specifically, a stranger, pretty shopgirl Lawson. Eventually falling in love with the star, Lawson is disillusioned by manager Ratoff, who informs the girl that Farrell is not only a love-'em-and-leave-'em type, but is already married. A happy ending does come about, however, thanks to a last-minute chase between an ocean liner and a tugboat (such sequences were a matter of course for the film's director, former silent-screen comedian Monty Banks).
