On his 30th birthday, unemployed rogue Tommy Deacon (Bobby Howes) inherits his aunt's fortune, but is informed it has been hidden in a bust of Napoleon in a country house he has also inherited. On discovering the house is now an Academy for Young Ladies, Tommy pretends to be the brother of Anne (René Ray), one of the girls, in order to gain admittance.
In 1937, The Sydney Morning Herald wrote, "Although a little slow in getting in to their stride, because of the sluggish opening of the story, the actors manage to vitalise a feeble plot with enough comical characterisation to make it acceptable as average entertainment."
