George Formby stars as casual chancer George Withers, perennially broke but fortunate enough to have the affection of his Aunt Georgina. Eccentric, wealthy and on her last legs, George is her favourite nephew, but she knows a pack of grasping relatives all have their eyes on her estate. In a last attempt to safeguard George’s future she sews £90,000 worth of jewels and bonds into the cushion of her antique chair. On Georgina’s death it emerges the chair is part of a set of six, all dispatched around the country to separate auctions. Aided by Florrie (Florence Desmond) and her little niece Binkie (Binkie Stewart), the chase is on to find the right chair as Georgina’s wide-eyed and shifty lawyer (Alistair Sim) follows swiftly behind. A fast paced comedy directed by Monty Banks and featuring favourite Formby musical number ”When I’m Cleaning Windows”.
