  • Description

    No title. Extracts from an unnamed stage show. The heir is played by Ralph Lynn, the heir's wife played by Madge Saunders. The real wife is Yvonne Arnaud.

    Stage set representing a lounge or library with a woman sitting on a sofa and another woman standing behind the sofa. A man enters and the woman on the sofa grabs him to kiss him. Some flirting ensues. C/U of the other woman looking worried. The first woman lays her head on the man's shoulder. Tom Walls arrives and takes a real dislike to the Curate - Ralph Lynn. High angle shot of the set with four of the players who run around frantically.

    Closer view of three of the the actors. The Curate suddenly takes fright and runs off. More business ensues. One of the men falls asleep and the Curate tiptoes out. A meeting between the impostor and the real heir (played by Sydney Lynn) behind the door. The two bearded men have a fight.

    Note: the plot sounds like that of "Tons of Money" which was a huge success in 1922. Three spellings of Sidney Lynn on record - also Sydney Lynn and Sidney Lynne.
