Storyline

Jacques Proudhon was an ambitious chef, who posed as a French Count, in order to obtain the hand of a rich girl, whose father had designs to obtain his daughter a titled husband. Jacques carried the game through very well by the aid of a disguise and much effrontery, but he reckoned without his host. In his case his host was a fellow menial, a woman servant, with whom the chef had dallied, who at the psychological moment gave Jacques away. The disguise of the bogus Count was penetrated and justice was done. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
