Moutonnet is a dim-witted French peasant, played by Noel-Noel. Merac is a sarcastic stage comedian, also played by Noel-Noel. During WWI, Merac's life is saved on the battlefield by Moutonnet. Seventeen years later, Merac returns the favor by starring in a picture based on Moutonnet's life. The latter heads to Paris to watch the film in progress, whereupon the inevitable mistaken-identity gags begin descending upon the proceedings. Fans of Noel-Noel were more than satisfied with the double dose of their favorite in Moutonnet, even if critics were not so enchanted.
