Based on an ancient legend, The Web of Fate was set during the French Revolution. A fugitive aristocrat hides out in the home of his Royalist sweetheart. Alas, a troop of Republican soldiers is also billeted in the girl's mansion. One of the soldiers sense the aristocrat's presence and searches every room. He stops short at a door which is covered by spider webs. Assuming that, because the webs are unbroken, the room must be unoccupied, the soldier bypasses the door and resumes his search elsewhere. It comes as no surprise to the audience that the hero is actually secreted behind the web-encrusted door, nor was it surprising that he was able to make his escape with his sweetheart in tow.
