Le Schpountz (Heartbeat) stars Fernandel as a feckless country boy named Saturnin who fancies himself the second coming of Charles Boyer, and wants to make it in the film industry on this basis. Director Marcel Pagnol uses the plot of this bucolic comedy drama to mercilessly drub his producers and their often questionable methods of raising production money.
