The title of this French comedy can be liberally translated as Champion Gate Crasher. This dubious honor has been bestowed upon the publicity-seeking hero, played by Gallic vaudeville artist Milton. A humble street singer, Milton strives to improve his lot in life by crashing virtually every major social event that comes his way. While sitting in a fancy restaurant enjoying a meal which he can't possibly afford, Milton makes the acquaintance of fetching damsels Helen Perdriere and Helene Robert. The two ladies are crazy about sports, so Milton obligingly begins crashing boxing matches, six-day bicycle races and football matches. Inevitably, he impersonates a football player, winning the game and one of the girls in a single fell swoop.
