The title character of this British comedy is nonexistent--at least in the story itself. General John Regan figures into a jovial conspiracy between American visitor Ward McAllister and local doctor Milton Rosmer. As a joke, the visitor and the doctor fabricate a story about the liberation of Bolivia. It is their contention that a mild-mannered villager is in fact the legendary liberator General Regan. It goes without saying that the gag gets out of hand, but we'll say it anyway. General John Regan was based on a play by George A. Birmingham.
