~Plot Synopsis~
When a former war correspondent from Bavaria, Karl Breitman (Henry B. Walthall), discovers that
one of his ancestors was Napoleon, he decides he wants to be an emperor himself. Obviously,
Breitman is a bit nuts. Nevertheless, he manages to win a fetching prima donna, Hedda Gobert
(Rosemary Theby), from her handsome suitor. In a New Jersey fireplace, Breitman finds a map
showing buried treasure on the island of Corsica. He goes there and actually does locate the treasure.
Unfortunately, he also gets in a duel and dies with Hedda by his side. This picture, which was almost
as scatterbrained as its lead character, was based on the novel by Harold MacGrath. It's one of
director Allan Dwan's lesser films.
