Sir Michael Fairlie is a wealthy English nobleman who has everything he could possibly want in life, except love. On a rainy night, he bumps into secretary Ann Kent, and promptly falls head over heels. Wanting to know if she would love him without his money, the millionaire disguises himself as a butler at the home of Ann's rich employers. But the tables are turned when a cat burglar disguised as Sir Michael arrives, with plans to rob the estate!Reginald Denny, the dashing star of The Cheerful Fraud, was one of the most popular leading men of the silent era.

Director William Seiter is best known for the Laurel & Hardy comedy Sons of the Desert (1933).PLUS: Sunny Side Up(BW, 1926): Sunny Ducrow, a perpetually optimistic urchin, sings in the streets in hopes of raising money to marry her out-of-work boyfriend, Bert.
