Fantasy inspired by fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen. Produced by "Zora Film", Zagreb, Croatia, ex-Yugoslavia. The first color movie (Eastmancolor) produced in Croatia. A vain Emperor who cares for nothing but his appearance and attire hires two tailors who are really swindlers that promise him the finest, best suit of clothes from a fabric invisible to anyone who is unfit for his position or "just hopelessly stupid". The Emperor cannot see the cloth himself, but pretends that he can for fear of appearing unfit for his position; his ministers do the same. When the swindlers report that the suit is finished, they mime dressing him and the Emperor then marches in procession before his subjects, who play along with the pretense.
