Welcome home, Tony, Geoffrey and a home and father you never knew. Ex-playboy Sir Basil Winterton has located the now-grown children he sired out of wedlock by different women and invited them to share the splendor of Rooksfold Manor. Psst! The cranky old man doesn't know (viewers do) that Tony isn't really his child. Top-billed Marion Davies's portrayal of unflappable flapper Tony is so central and appealing that this early comedy Talkie could aptly be called The Bachelor Father's Daughter. C. Aubrey Smith reprises his stage role as the stiff-upper-lipper whose uppercrust crust is softened by family. The source play is by Edward Childs Carpenter, whose Connie Goes Home inspired The Major and the Minor.
