Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Raymond Rouleau stars in Le Couple Ideal as a French movie leading man, circa 1912. Slated to appear at a gala for President Armand Falieres, Rouleau is detained by the police at the behest of a scheming producer. To escape the clutches of the law and make it to the celebration on time, our hero is forced to adopt a series of clever disguises. Helene Perdiere costars as a "Perils of Pauline"-type actress who ends up in Rouleau's arms. As a lampoon of the early silent era, Le Couple Ideal is not quite as memorable as Rene Clair's Le Silence C'est D'Or.
