Andre-Louis Moreau is a nobleman's bastard in the days of the French revolution. Noel, the Marquis de Mayne, a nobleman in love with the Queen, is ordered to seek the hand of a young ingenue, Aline, in marriage. Andre also meets Aline, and forms an interest in her. But when the marquis kills his best friend Andre declares himself the Marquis's enemy and vows to avenge his friend. He hides out, a wanted man, as an actor in a commedia troupe, and spends his days learning how to handle a sword. When de Maynes becomes a spadassinicide, challenging opposing National Assembly members to duels they have no hope of winning, Andre becomes a politician to protect the third estate (and hopefully ventilate de Maynes).

This movie contains what is reported to be the longest fencing duel ever caught on film, the climactic fight that ranges throughout the theater, from the balcony boxes, to the lobby, through the main seats, backstage and finally on the stage itself. See more »

This is one of my favorite movies ever! A wonderful period piece, with a light hearted love story line. Granger, of course, is in his element acting these types of roles. The story line is set in France during the pre-revolutionary and revolutionary times. Granger is a B*****d in search of his family, and mistakenly believes he is from a certain family.... this and a friendship with a revolutionary writer, give him a fun run for his money! You have to see it at least once.... it is SO good!
