The inimitable Fernandel stars as Barnabe in this French musical farce. Most of the action takes place at a huge chateau, where Barnabe, the assistant to a big-time theatrical producer, has been assigned to stage a big show in honor of an upcoming society wedding. Thanks to series of bizarre misunderstandings, Barnabe is mistaken for the bridegroom, a Gallic nobleman whom no one -- not even the bride -- has ever seen. Confusion reigns supreme when the bride's true love shows up, also claiming to be the missing nobleman. Even after the final fadeout, the audience will have quite a time determining who ends up married to whom.
