Abstract:

[Young & innocent]: A film actress is murdered by her estranged husband who is jealous of all her young boyfriends. The next day one such boyfriend discovers her body on the beach. He runs to call the police, however, two witnesses think that he is the escaping murderer. He is arrested, but owing to a mix up at the courthouse, he escapes and goes on the run with a police constable's daughter, determined to prove his innocence.

[Blackmail]: Alice White is the daughter of a shopkeeper in 1920's London. Her boyfriend, Frank Webber is a Scotland Yard detective who seems more interested in police work than in her. Frank takes Alice out one night, but she has secretly arranged to meet another man. When the other man tries to rape Alice, she defends herself and kills him with a bread knife. When the body is discovered, Frank is assigned to the case, he quickly determines that Alice is the killer, but so has someone else and blackmail is threatened.

[Juno & the paycock]: During the Irish revolution, a family earns a big inheritance. They start leading a rich life forgetting what the most important values of are. At the end, they discover they will not receive that inheritance; the family is destroyed and penniless. They must sell their home and start living like vagabonds.

[Rich & strange]: Fred and Emily Hill lead a boring life in the London suburbs. They decide to escape from it all by writing to a rich relative and asking for their inheritance in advance. Using the money they go on a world cruise and get into a series of misadventures.
