Seraphin was assembled by Quebec Productions, an adventurous concern that had hopes of establishing a booming Canadian film industry in the postwar years. The story takes place in 1890, when a small group of Laurentians settle in the Canadian wilderness. The bane of their existence is the miserly Seraphin, played by Hector Charland. Seraphin is constantly being foiled in his efforts to reduce the locals to penury, only to bounce back as nasty as ever. Both Seraphin and Quebec Productions' previous Un Homme et Son Peche were adapted from a long-running Canadian radio serial, which also starred Hector Charland. Like its predecessor, Seraphin was filmed in haste, possibly to capitalize on the radio series before its popularity waned.
