Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Instead of his usual two-reel format, Mack Sennett made a five-reel, feature-length film to spoof the recently ended World War. The Americans use the Kaiser's penchant for a pretty face to steal some secret plans from him. They disguise one of their captains, Bob (Bothwell Browne), as a seductress and send him behind German lines. Not only does Bob in drag impress the Kaiser (Ford Sterling), but the Crown Prince (Hal St. Clair) and Hindenburg (Bert Roach) are also captivated by "her" charms. The three vie for Bob's attention, with the Kaiser clearly the favorite, until Mrs. Kaiser catches wind of the proceedings. The Kaiser, nevertheless, slips away to Bob's quarters, where Bob treats him to an Oriental dance. But Hindenburg and the Crown Prince barge in and a melee ensues. Bob makes a hasty exit, gets the plans to his superiors and snatches up a Belgian refugee (Marie Prevost) as his bride.
