"Quality Street" is a period

wars. The heroine falls in love
with a young doctor whom she be

had such an idea in mind he
promptly lost it by listening to a
recruiting sergeant in search of
men to fight Napoleon. Years
later when he returns he is grieved
and shocked at the changed ap

The latter, however, Is able to
make herself up as the beauty of
years before, and after soundly
teaching the doctor a lesson suc
