Chevalier turns on the charm as a king arriving in Paris to sign a treaty. He is quickly initiated into the ways of the French when he is hit in the face with a creampuff thrown by Desmarets, the wife of senator Adam. The senator is soon shocked to discover that his visitor is quite
interested in both Desmarets and Ducaux, his mistress. In a scheme to get Chevalier to sign the treaty, the senator makes it painfully easy for the king to seduce the two women. The treaty is signed, and the king returns to his homeland, forever convinced of his charm. Chevalier doesn't disappoint
in his delivery of "C'est Fini" and "Danser La Cachucha," both of which are delivered with the maximum of grace. An earlier version, called THE KING (LE ROI), with Victor Francen and Raimu, was made in France in 1936 (released in the US in 1941).
