Described alliteratively as a "pictural phantasy", La Folle Nuit (The Mad Night) is set sometime in the 18th century. The hero, played by Guy Parzy, is the brother of Suzanne Blanchetti, lady-in-waiting to gorgeous duchess Colette Brodo. Parzy falls in love with the duchess, but can't get anywhere near her thanks to the vigilance of the girl's duenna Marguerite Deval. In desperation, Parzy disguises himself in his sister's clothes and poses as a girl. This gains him entrance to the duchess' boudoir -- but now what does he do?
