Synopsis by Hal Erickson
L'Extravagante Mission (The Queer Assignment) is set on an extremely busy ocean liner. Comic actor Henri Guisol plays a dimwit who mistakenly believes that he's been hired by a prominent banker to impersonate a wealthy marquis. Guisol is convinced that it is his mission to transport important papers to a far-eastern potentate. Alas, he gets mixed up with a bevy of pretty girls and a gang of not-so-pretty crooks, and as an upshot finds himself in possession of a cache of "hot" money. Though billed first, Jean Tissier plays the thankless role of the ship's doctor.
