Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Released in English-speaking regions as Affair of Honor, this Hungarian comedy details the tribulations of elderly bookkeeper Julius Kabos. Getting involved in an argument with the boss's nephew, Kabos ends up getting his face slapped. Asserting himself for the first time in his life, he demands satisfaction by challenging the nephew to a duel -- only to realize he's too old and too broke for such a drastic measure. Things straighten themselves out when the nephew, actually a likeable chap, apologizes to Kabos within earshot of the other employees, including the old man's erstwhile sweetheart, plump secretary Ella Gombaszogi.
