Synopsis: From England. Lusty comedy, bright, brash, human, and live, "tuppence-coloured," about a young man who succeeded in business, through the initiative of a most unusual Cat. Cast of 5 women, 12 men, extras. Six sets. 18th century English costumes.
Arriving in London hungry and homeless, Dick Whittington acquires a cat named Samantha, which he cherishes as his sole possession. Hired as a kitchen boy by Alderman Fitzwarren, he stands in the way of Fitzwarren's dishonest apprentice, Hodge, who contrives to disgrace him and send him packing with his cat. On the way out of London, Samantha reveals a remarkable ability not only to understand the Bow bells, but to express herself in lucid terms. Using persuasive measures, she leads Dick back to London, where she sails to the Orient in Dick's interest, and by her performance at the colorful court of the Emir of Ucassee, makes a fortune for her master.
