The story of a married man, Paul Gueret, who finds himself drawn to a young laundry worker, Angele. However, when he finds out she is also his employer's mistress, in a furious rage he might do things he'll regret in the future.
Colorful but empty spectacle purports to tell an alternate version of the flight and plight of the young son of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI as he tries to escape sinister forces who wish his death and his own aversion to ruling France.
Silly junk with terrible dubbing has lovely production values and one fun performance but is mostly overly earnest hogwash.
Belinda Lee is very beautiful and looks exquisite in her period clothes but isn't really given anything of significance to do.
Without a doubt the best and most enjoyable performance comes from Martita Hunt as the bedridden but sprightly Lady Lydia, a saucy old fox with a sharp tongue and a knowing outlook as well as some truly amazing and ridiculous wigs.
Keith Michell would go on to an impressive career that included his masterful work as Henry VIII but he is just another sneering villain of little distinction.
The real blank wall though is Louis Jourdan an actor capable at times of exuding a great deal of charm here he is a dull posing lump.
Ploddingly directed with a story that is not that compelling this is for ardent fans of costume pictures or the stars only.
