In the consul's uniform

DK/FeatureComedy, ComedySilent films

Consul Descombes is a married man, but yearns for long nights with female companionship in Paris. As fate would have it, one day he receives a letter from a former acquaintance named Lulu, who wants to take him to Paris. Descombes leaves under the pretence of going on a business trip. During his trip, the wife is visited by the consul’s superior and the nation’s prince, Louis XXXVIII. Much hilarity ensues.
