Film Notes

Dandy goes to the pharmacy for medicine for his wife Lulu. The assistant is writing a love letter to the boss’s daughter, proposing that they elope on the next transatlantic ship. The letter of course ends up with Lulu’s medicine. Furious, Lulu embarks on the Pacific, with the firm intention of fetching her husband. Dandy reacts as his wife did, and tries to catch up with the packet-boat by aeroplane. After a forced landing and a brief stay on an island inhabited by nymphs, Dandy succeeds in catching up with the ship. The maze of bridges and cabins becomes the theatre for misunderstandings and epic pursuits….
