THE play opens with a scene outside the Hotel somewhere on the Riviera, where Lord Campton (Harold French) is spending his honeymoon. His creditors among the local trades-people are many and noisy, which makes it all the more difficult for him when his trustee, Lord Bransmore, arrives to tell him that he has been so successful in spending his money that none is left. Lady Campton (Marjorie Gordon) refuses to be frightened by the prospect of love in an impoverished cottage, but pretends to change her mind after a conversation with Lord Bransmere. The wily nobleman reminds her that her husband's family is so infuriated by his marriage to an actress that it has cut him off with the proverbial shilling and suggests that she should perform an act of noble renunciation and divorce her husband. Lord Campton's prospects would then be rosy, for Silas B. Hock (John Kirby ) the American multi-millionaire has just arrived at the hotel with his daughter Virginia (Emma Haig), who is doomed to marry an English noble. man if her father's scheming can possibly achieve that end. He is willing to pay all Lord Campton's debts if he marries Virginia. Virginia has other ideas on the subject, and has, in fact, already married her father's secretary, Nicholas Ninni John (George Gee), but does not confess the fact. At the end of this act Silas B. Hock has lived up to his appearance of a human Steam-roller and flattened out the objections of the four unfortunate pawns in his matrimonial game.
