An adventure set in the early part of the 20th century and focused on a popular novelist and her dealings with would-be suitors, the cops, monsters, and other distractions.
President Fallières has a Scotch terrier called Nelson. This is ironic given that two of greatest defeats suffered by the French Navy (the Battles of the Nile and Trafalgar) were inflicted by the British admiral, Horatio Nelson.
Near the opening scenes, immediately after the can-can scene, when Mr Ferdinand Choupard arrives in front of the Jeanne D'Arc monument, the speaker says he's in the "place des pyramides" but it appears the place got this name only in 5 January 1932: in 1911, at the time when the story goes, its name was still "place de Rivoli".
The initial credits show Egyptian figures next to the names the contributors. The figures are based on traditional Egyptian art, but with modifications reflecting the role of the person name in the credit e.g. carrying musical instruments or a power lead. The figures 'morph' between credits.
