Lord Guy Carlton, di ritorno dalla guerra contro Napoleone, desidera solo alcol, donne e divertirnento. Affitta 67 Clarges Street, dove si stabilisce con un amico, e all'inizio il gruppo dei nostri simpatici domestici è felice del nuovo inquilino, che elargisce abbondanti mance e porta nuova vita nell'elegante dimora. Dopo pochissimo, però, lo stile sregolato del giovanotto sciocca Rainbird and Co., e quando lord Carlton s'innamora di una giovane ereditiera dall'educazione rigida, che lo vede come la quintessenza di tutti i peccati, Rainbird sarà felice di correre in suo aiuto per trasformarlo in un gentiluomo.
