Plot Synopsis

Take My Tip

Hilarious rapid-fire musical farce with Jack Hulbert and Cicely Courtneidge. Lord and Lady Pilkington (Jack Hulbert and Cicely Courtneidge), are swindled out of their money by a trickster (Harold Huth). They go to a hotel owned by their butler, where they encounter the villain again. By assuming various identities, including a waiter and a countess and a couple of upper-crust oil-diviners, they ultimately turn the tables and get their money hack.
