French-Canadian actor/playwright Gratien Selinas' popular theatre piece Tit Coq was brought to the screen in 1953, with Selinas himself in the title role. The story concerns an arrogant young soldier of illegitimate birth, whose amoral behavior and chip-on-the-shoulder attitude proves a roadblock in his romance with lovely young Marie-Ange (Monique Miller). Through a misunderstanding, Marie-Ange weds another while Tit Coq is overseas, convincing the ill-tempered young man that life's a cesspool after all. A last-minute effort to steal Marie-Ange away from her husband is foiled when Tit Coq's long-dormant sense of morality is awakened. Filmed on a tiny budget, Tit Coq was a significant success in Canada.
