Synopsis

The hard-up Ffordes of Hooton House struggle to stay solvent, and while Lady Ishbel,
thanks to the current popularity in America of the British aristocracy, awaits the arrival of
Hooton’s first paying guest, unknown to her, Sir Cedric has rented the West Wing for the
weekend to an erotic- film company.
The West and East Wings combine with hair-raising results thanks to their guest’s passion
for men, diamonds, Lady Macbeth … and the family ghosts!
Meanwhile, just as he fears he may be the last in a long line of Ffordes, Sir Cedric has a
big surprise.
