~The Fortunes of Fifi~
~Plot Synopsis~
When Cartouche (William Sorelle), an old soldier, falls in love with the actress Fifi (Marguerite Clark), he
determines to protect the woman he loves. After Fifi wins the lottery with a ticket that Cartouche gave
her, it is decided that she should live with the Bourcet family in order to be educated. Believing Fifi to be
quite wealthy, attorney Louis Bourcet (Jean Gauthier) proposes to the actress, and she accepts. Later she
realizes that she really loves Cartouche and decides to break the engagement by squandering her money.
She then returns to Cartouche who refuses to marry her because he believes himself too old, at which
point Napoleon intervenes and decrees that they should marry, thus forcing Cartouche to accept Fifi's
love. This film was originally a play by Molly Elliot Seawell.
