Wealthy French farmer Lucien D'Artois ( Adolphe Menjou ) fond of raising horses, is married to Germaine ( Virginia Valli ), according to the terms of a marriage contract. When she finds his rustic interests unbearable, she leaves him. Determined to become a polished Parisian, Lucien goes to the city and assiduously studies fencing and dancing but is unable to gain her favour. He embarks on a life of frivolity and free spending and to demonstrate his powers with women deliberately steals Fox Trot ( Louise Brooks ), a nightclub girl, from Lazarre ( Noah Beery ). When his fortune is depleted, his entire possessions are confiscated with the exception of a suit of evening clothes. Living by his wits, Lucien imagines himself still a popular and wealthy count, and returning to his bare flat, he finds his wife returned to him.
This 1927 silent comedy was produced by Famous Players-Lasky and boasted a cast of popular silent stars including Adolphe Menjou, Virginia Valli, Noah Beery and Louise Brooks. Tragically it now remains a lost silent film.
