Filmed by Gaumont's French division, the three-reel, color-tinted Colonel Bontemps was a standard Gallic romantic farce. Hoping to romance Colonel Bontemps' daughter, a young Baron wheedles his way into the Colonel's confidence. En route to the Bontemps mansion, the Baron makes the acquaintance of another young lady and tries to follow her home. As a result, he is challenged to a duel by the lady's hot-tempered husband. To escape this fate, the Baron presents his challenger with Colonel Bontemps' calling card rather than his own. And when the Colonel finds out that he is to fight a duel with a man he's never met -- sacre bleu!
