Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Also known as Le Rosier de Mme. Husson, He is based on a story by Guy De Maupassant. The story takes place in a tiny French village, where every year a cash prize is awarded the most virtuous girl in town. Alas, virtue is so rare a commodity that the villagers are compelled to select a boy as their prize-winner. The lad chosen is horse-faced Fernandel, who upon winning the honor almost instantly disqualifies himself at the local brothel. Cut by nearly two reels for its American release, He emerged in a rather ragged 55-minute form, with crude English-language dubbing provided to gloss over the more censurable aspects of the story.
