Fernand Gravey plays Alfred VII, a young and rich deposed King in exile in Paris, monumentally bored. When he becomes involved with a chorus girl whom he accidentally insults (by falling asleep), her indignation provides an opportunity for his loyal courtiers to bring him back to life.
Gravey (billed as "Gravet") was at the time the subject of a significant studio publicity campaign to build his image.
The film is notable for being the only one with a screenplay officially credited to Groucho Marx.
