Synopsis

Bertie Wooster's friend Gussie Fink-Nottle must spend two weeks in jail for illegal fountain wading. Worse, Gussie's fiancee Madeline, a volatile young woman who turns to Bertie when Gussie upsets her, will probably not take the news very well. Bertie's idea of impersonating Gussie triggers an array of comic complications in this witty romp. As always, Jeeves, who dons his own disguise, comes through to save the day.
