Previously filmed in 1914, the popular turn-of-the-century stage farce Rejuvenation of Aunt Mary was remade in 1927. This time, the title character was played by May Robson, repeating her original Broadway role. A priggish spinster, Aunt Mary (Robson) kicks up her heels when she is reunited with her childhood sweetheart. Visiting a nightclub for the first time in her life, Auntie proceeds to get royally plastered, culminating in her arrest when the cops raid the joint. Dragged into night court, Aunt Mary is brought before the judge -- who, of course, is none other than her old boyfriend. For the rest of the picture, Aunt M. and her erstwhile beau are kept apart by the rowdy antics of her ne'er-do-well nephew, who for all that is the fellow who brings the two old folks back together in the final footage.
