The ploy is to convince the Earl that it is not Pansy in the photograph but an actress called Baby Grand. When the Earl decides to look at this Baby Grand for himself, Pansy is required to impersonate the actress and a friend's flat is commandeered, but a rendezvous has already been arranged there between the Minister of Movies and the flapper Sapphire. The complications, fast and furious, involve all the other members of the 'gang', including the former seaside comics, Pony Twitchin and Fudge Robinson, until the requisite happy ending is reached.
