Plot Synopsis

Love on Wheels

Following their success in Sunshine Susie, both Jack Hulbert and Renate Muller were given further films based on original German scripts. Love on Wheels, (1932) was a Hulbert vehicle with the store scenes shot at Selfridges in London, adapted from a screenplay by Franz Schulz and Ernst Angel.

The story concerns store assistant Fred (Jack Hulbert), aiming to impress Jane (Leonora Corbett) by posing as the store’s advertising manager. Sacked, he thwarts store thieves, gets himself re-engaged and actually becomes advertising manager in earnest. He tracks down Jane, who had left him, earning a living as a pianist and puts he in-charge of the store’s music department.
