This film here runs just under a minute and is one of those one-joke films. We see a Colonel show up and start shouting orders to his men but the Colonel gets an unwelcomed shock when a bucket of water is dropped on him.

The sets were the one good thing but this isn't the type of film you want to see from director Melies.
