Although the Earl of Dorincourt is initially skeptical of his grandson, Cedric’s open-minded manner quickly succeeds in winning the old man’s heart. Cedric’s mother, Mrs. Errol (Connie Booth), lives in a nearby country house because the Earl has great reservations about her: Cedric’s father is the youngest of the earl’s three sons and had married a middle-class woman. The traditional Earl, who has deep resentment towards the United States, found this angry.
