Martin Jarvis and Rosalind Ayres direct a star cast in this sparkling P.G. Wodehouse comedy.

It's the 1920s and Edward Bennett is Psmith (the P is silent!). He's as broke as the Ten Commandments and advertises himself to 'go anywhere, do anything. Crime not objected to!'

Down at idyllic Blandings Castle, affably vague Lord Emsworth prepares to travel to London to collect a famous poet who's been invited to Blandings by his fearsome sister Constance.

Emsworth's son Freddie sees Psmith's advert. He needs someone to steal his aunt's necklace! In town, the Earl mistakes Psmith for the poet. Psmith spots lovely Eve Halliday. He falls in love on sight. Freddie hires Psmith to do the stealing.

Love and crime, hand-in-hand. A thrilling farce ensues.
