The Last of Mrs. Cheyney is the second of three film versions of the Frederick Lonsdale play, a sophisticated comedy that is "Veddy, Veddy British" (at least by Hollywood standards of ).

Fay Cheyney (Joan Crawford) is an American widow/socialite from Minneapolis, now in England, who socializes with the upper crust of society. The Last of Mrs. Cheyney tells the story of wealthy British socialites, Lord Kelton (Morgan) and Lord Dilling (Montgomery), and the cunning, charming American heiress, Mrs.

Fay Cheney (Crawford) is a rich widow. On a boat headed to England, she mistakenly enters the suite of Lord Kelton (Frank "Wizard of Oz" Morgan), an older English noble, who takes an immediate liking to the attractive young woman. The Last of Mrs. Cheyney possesses all the touchstones of a quintessential screwball comedy skewed slightly.

As opposed to a flighty heiress being paired up with a nebbish slice of Americana male, we have a brazen rich widow trying to pull the wool over a whole group of crusty English high society. Norma Shearer does extremely competent work, the best, as a matter of fact, that we have seen her do.
