The ingenious valet Jeeves and his master Bertie Wooster must stop a marriage in "Extricating Young Gussie," a romantic comedy by the masterly P. G. Wodehouse.
Bertie Wooster's Aunt Agatha is at her wit's end. She believes Gussie Mannerling-Phipps—her nephew and Bertie's cousin—plans to marry a chorus-girl in New York. And only Bertie can prevent their elopement. Along with Jeeves, his clever valet, Bertie travels to America in search of his love-struck cousin. He arrives to find Gussie, now going by the name "George Wilson," posing as a theatrical man to win over his girl's father. Unable to persuade him, Bertie is forced to ask Aunt Julia, Gussie's mother, for help. But love blossoms in the most unexpected places, and Bertie finds himself in a situation beyond his control.
