Sypnosis:
Jack Chesney and Charley Wykeham, undergraduates at Oxford, are in love with two beauties soon to be leaving for Scotland. And when Donna Lucia d’Alvadorez, Charley’s aunt, whom he has never met, comes to visit, Jack and Charley seize the opportunity to spend time with their girls under the pretense of a lunch for Amy and Kitty to meet Charley’s Aunt. But then Charley receives a telegram saying that Donna Lucia will not be arriving for a few days, the boys panic: the girls are coming, and they won’t stay without a chaperone.

Fortunately, their good friend and neighbor Babbs happens to be performing in an amateur play, in which he plays the role of an old lady….and he happens to have the costume at home! With Babb’s dressed as “Charley’s Aunt,” what could go wrong? Mix up, mayhem, and wooing ensue!
