If Fernandel did not appear in a supporting part ,another short (by E.Chotin who made dozens of them)which would not have been restored.But Fernandel is here ,playing a street pedlar selling luxury (sic) clothes on the flea market with a gorgeous girl as a model.She is the daughter of another vendor,who sells Rembrandt paintings (sic) and diamonds from the court of Russia (re-sic).Two antique dealers (who sell so-called invaluable items to the local aristocracy) send their son -who's no good and who spends his nights having a wild time and drinking with his pals- to the flea market (I began to work there,So will he!) This is a rather desultory script but Fernandel's presence makes the short worthwhile.He sings one song: "le Père Lapuce".
