Description by OLDIES.com:

Sydney Chaplin, the older half brother of Hollywood legend, Charlie, enjoyed screen success in Keystone comedies, most notably A Submarine Pilot (1915). He quit acting to successfully negotiate Charlie's first million dollar contract in 1916. Sydney reappeared on the screen in the 1920s in a string of comedies including The Perfect Flapper (1924), Charley's Aunt (1925) and The Better Ole (1926). His final appearance would be in the British International Pictures production of A Little Bit Of Fluff (1928) before a sex scandal would end his career in film.

If his beautiful young wards Kitty Verdun and niece Amy Spettigue marry, aging guardian Stephen Spettigue loses his income. He is determined to derail their romance at all costs and whisks the girls off to Scotland, out of the reach of their suitors, Jack Chesney and Charley Wykeham. To the rescue comes pal Lord Fancourt Babberly - "Babbs" - who agrees to dress in drag and assume the identity of Charley's aunt Donna Lucia, a filthy rich Brazilian heiress. Under the premise of a visit from Charley's aunt, the boys are able to gain an invitation to visit Scotland, where they plan to distract Spettigue, and propose to their sweethearts. The plan is ruined when Amy's uncle learns of Dona Lucia's millions, and decides he must have "her" for his own.
