Synopsis / Plot
A Russian emigre leases a villa near Monte Carlo after WWI, and poses as a count in order to take advantage of women, with the aid of two of his mistresses pretending to be his cousins, attempts to swindle unsuspecting women and citizens in Monte Carlo. They hatch a scheme to ingratiate themselves with the American ambassador and his gullible wife. Mrs. Hughes wants some excitement, and he seduces her. While the Count relates his sob story about needing 90,000 francs to Mrs. Hughes, the maid in jealousy sets the house on fire. Both escape the flames, but the Count does not escape his just desserts.
