Two mismatched sets of identical twins, one aristocrat, one peasant, mistakenly exchange identities on the eve of the French Revolution.
Gene Wilder chose to do this film over Catch-22 (1970).
The Summer Palace, 1789: King Louis, whose tinkering with time pieces did not tell him that his own time was running out; Queen Marie, who tinkered with everything but time pieces - she didn't care what time it was; but the Duke d'Escargot knew what...
When Marie, and Philippe are kissing on the couch, the dog on the couch disappears, and reappears a couple of times.
