Synopsis:
When Charles II is restored to the crown in 1660, multitudes of aristocratic émigrés return from exile in Paris, bringing with them a lifestyle rich in a French flamboyance quite alien to the English Puritans. Lord Ascot agrees to take on a young French footman, Claude Duval, whose Gallic affectations and charms quickly catch the eye of Lady Ascot and her circle of friends. Unbeknown to his employers, Duval is a compulsive gambler with a penchant for committing robbery on the highway.
