Oh Daddy! – 1935 | 77 mins | Comedy | B&W

Plot Synopsis

Oh Daddy!

Lord Pye (Leslie Henson) is altogether bored with life with his Uncle, a puritanical tyrant. His inimitable secretary, Rupert (Robertson Hare), feels it is his duty to uplift his master’s spirits at every opportunity so heartily agrees with him no matter what he says. This tendency leads to much confusion when Pye misses his train connection and books into a London hotel. He unwittingly falls for the stepdaughter he has never met, a cabaret artist, Benita (Frances Day), and wishes to win her affections. Added to this, his displeased relatives make his path to happiness less than straightforward when arriving unannounced.
