Piccadilly Jim

Synopsis

James Crocker: young, dashing and American, is having a jolly time in London; drinking, partying with unsuitable ladies and starting bar room brawls, earning him the nickname 'Piccadilly Jim'. That is, until his fearsome Aunt Nesta appears from New York, determined to drag him home, teach him some manners and get him a proper job. Jim has no intention of leaving until he claps eyes on Anne, Nesta's step-niece, and he is on his way to New York quicker than you can say 'Double martini, please barman!' Anne has never met Jim in the flesh, though knows about his fearful reputation, so Jim pretends to be Algernon Bayliss; teetotaller and upright member of society, until he can convince Anne to fall in love with the real Jim. But with temptation at every step, as well as his Aunt Nesta on his heels, will this be Piccadilly Jim's finest hour, or his final undoing?
