A Damsel in Distress

«A Damsel in Distress» is a madcap adventure whose comic twists and turns could only have come from the zany imagination of P.G.Wodehouse. Respectable George Bevan is minding his own business, zooming down the street in a taxi, when out of nowhere, lovely Maud Marsh jumps into the car with him, begging for his help. As George recovers from his shock, Maud’s sad plight comes to light. She is desperate to escape her aunt’s meddlesome ways and reunite with the man she loves. George is moved by Maud’s tragic tale and chivalrously offers to aid the hapless damsel. As soon find, however, no good deed goes unpunished. Mistaken identities, hilarious run-ins with high-tempered relatives, and all manner of shenanigans come George’s way before we can reach the exciting conclusion of this wacky romantic comedy.

"We hope so. But I should feel safer if Maud were engaged to
Reggie. I do think you might take the trouble to speak to Maud."
"Speak to her? I do speak to her." Lord Marshmoreton's brain moved slowly when he was pre-occupied with his roses. "We're on excellent terms."
Lady Caroline frowned impatiently. Hers was an alert, vigorous mind, bright and strong like a steel trap, and her brother's vagueness and growing habit of inattention irritated her.
"I mean to speak to her about becoming engaged to Reggie. You are her father. Surely you can at least try to persuade her."
