gets a new look !
This picture, based on a play by the same name, features influential comic Max Linder as a waiter who inherits two million francs. But Max can't quit his job because his uncle's old servant has schemed with the cafe's owner to get a cut of the money by binding him to a contract -- Max must work at the cafe for 20 years; if he quits, he must forfeit half a million francs. To keep the whole inheritance, he stays at his job, but at night he moves with Paris' most fashionable inhabitants. Finally, he falls in love with his boss' daughter and willingly gives up everything for her.
