Since leading man Godfrey Tearle was always well garbed, it's only natural that he'd be starred in a film called Fancy Dress. The plot is predicated on the old homily that you can't judge a book by its cover. Tearle plays a touring actor, known for his sartorial splendor. He is hired by a crooked attorney to pose as the heir to a fortune. He pulls off the charade, but his conscience gets the better of him when he falls in love with the heroine (Ivy Duke).
