Barry Butts In is a 1919 Australian film comedy from director Beaumont Smith starring British vaudevillian Barry Lupino, who was then visiting Australian. It is considered a lost film.
Barry (Barry Lupino), works in a grocery store in the country. He falls in love with a beautiful young girl (Agnes Dobson) in a touring pantomime show who is the granddaughter of Barry's uncle, a wealthy man who years ago disowned the girl's mother because she married an actor. The old man requests his nephews come to Sydney so he can choose an heir. Barry's cousins try to humiliate him but he manages to triumph and inherit his uncle's fortune, and marry the girl.
