Do Butlers Burgle Banks? features the hither to fortunate owner of Bond’s Bank, who find himself in a spot of trouble so serious that he wants someone to burgle the bank before the trustees inspect it. Fortunately for him, Horace Appleby, currently posing as his butler, is on hand to oblige. For Horace is, in fact, not a butler at all but the best sort of gangster, prudently concealing himself in an English country house while hiding from his rivals. Looking for peace and safety, Horace is to discover before long that the hotspots of Chicago are a whole lot more restful than the English countryside. This is the lightest of light comedies, a Woodhousean soufflé from his later years.
