ynopsis

Jeff Randall and Jeannie are given work as escorts for a beauty contest featuring beautiful women from around the world. While Jeff begins a romantic involvement with the attractive Miss Moscow, Marty quickly becomes aware that Jeannie's charge, Miss London, is an undercover spy interested in valuable documents. Severing alarm systems at the vault in order to let her employer, Mr. Harold Pargiter, steal files with an electronic arm, the facts of the case are figured out by Marty whilst Jeff is understandably too busy with Miss Moscow to take any notice.

It transpires that Henry VIII look-alike Pargiter (Ronald Radd) believes that his ancestors' family titles and deeds were stolen by King John in the 13th century, and that he should have been King Harold the Fourteenth. Determined to state his place as heir to the throne - an activity that turns his henchwomen Miss London Anne Soames against him, mistakenly believing they were out to rob banks and valuable documents. Pargiter is tracked down to his warehouse headquarters by Jeff. However, Jeff is beaten by Pargiter's henchmen, named the "Lords" of Dorking and Surrey, and Jeff and Miss London are bound and are both sentenced to be burnt for treason. Pargiter's henchmen set fire to the warehouse but Jeff eventually escapes with Marty's help in smashing the alarm bell. Miss London is rounded up by the police. Driving along the Thames Marty stands atop the car and sees Pargiter and his Lords on a boat. They track him and eventually see them transferring to a maroon classic car with a personalised Harold 14th number plate. the insane Pargiter is eventually trapped by Jeff, the police and some fortuitously bad parking by a lorry driver, and in true "monarch" style he abdicates to Jeff before he is arrested. Back at Jeff's apartment, Jeff gets another chance with Miss Moscow but is inadvertently interrupted by Jeannie, leaving her to jump to conclusions that Jeannie is Jeff's lover, walking out on him. Jeff to be left alone for his "cup of tea".
