Plot Summary

French 15th-century poet François Villon (John Barrymore) loses his father at a young age, a martyr to the French cause. Villon follows in his father's footsteps, fighting ardently for his country while becoming a poet and jester. Appointed king for the day, he goes too far when he makes a joke at the expense of the Duke of Burgundy (Lawson Butt) and is exiled by King Louis XI (Conrad Veidt). He has to prove to the king that it's the duke who is the real enemy of France.
