Hotshot reporter Frank Burdon is thrilled to land a job at the only newspaper in the wee Scottish town of Baikie. His first assignment is to interview the local politician, wealthy William Gow, who is running for Parliament. Burdon is shocked to find that despite Gow's glowing reputation, the man is totally insensitive. The final straw comes when the politician refuses to speak to a destitute ice cream vendor whose dog he impounded when she could no longer afford to pay the license. Indignant, Burdon's puff piece begins to take another direction... Despite himself, Burdon can't help but fall for Gow's beautiful daughter Vickie. When his piece breaks, hundreds of British press descend on the tiny town. When a pack of impounded dogs including the ice cream vendor's hound are set free, how will Burdon prove his innocence? This rare British foray into the Screwball genre sees Rex Harrison take his first starring role. If you don't watch 'Storm in a Teacup' for the hilarious script, impeccable acting, adorable doggy talent or fascinating anti-fascist undercurrents, watch it to see two burgeoning Hollywood icons at the very start of their huge careers!
