Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this British comedy of manners, an industrialist finally retires from the mill he created from scratch and leaves it to his nephew who becomes the quarry of a gold digging widow who tries to introduce the man into high-society circles. Because the fellow is from low-class Yorkshire, he is made the laughing-stock of the elite, who only pay attention to him because he is so wealthy. When his uninsured mill burns to the ground, they soon desert him. The pragmatic fellow then marries his housekeeper and starts rebuilding the mill.
