"’Once upon a time, two penniless beaux are forced to flee their creditors in the expensive beau monde of London and roam about the countryside seeking salvation by marrying women of great beauty (if possible) and fortune (without question). They fetch up in the country town of Litchfield and put their stratagem into play. It all works wonderfully well, although not before many a diverting moment involving such matters as a highway robbery, life in an inn owned by a rogue, mistaken identity, much sexual innuendo played out in front of and behind beautiful and not-so-beautiful women, sword-play, heavy drinking--and lively comment on the nature and destiny of the genders, separate and together.’ --Tappan Wilder”
