Ruggles of Red Gap is a comedy set in 1908 that depicts the story of Marmaduke Ruggles (Charles Laughton), the butler of Lord Burnstead (Roland Young). Using Ruggles as his poker stake, unlucky Burnstead loses a game to an American cattle baron, Egbert Floud (Charles Ruggles). Egbert and his wife, Effie (Mary Boland), bring Ruggles home with them to the frontier town of Red Gap, Washington. Mrs. Floud futilely hopes that Ruggles' manners and refined style will rub off on her uncouth husband. Meanwhile, Egbert and Ruggles are out on the town, drinking at the local saloon, telling tall tales, and entertaining fellow drinkers. The unruly crowd is temporarily silenced when an inebriated Ruggles recites the Gettysburg Address. Ruggles later meets and befriends a widow, Mrs. Judson (ZaSu Pitts), and, hoping to impress her with his culinary expertise, decides to open a restaurant. Ruggles slowly transitions from an obedient servant of the British upper class to an independent business person in the rough and tumble American Wild West.moreless
