Captain Scarlett

In post-Napoleonic France, the Duke of Corlaine reprimands Count Villiers because his Spanish fiance, Princess Maria, has run away. When Marias carriage is accosted by highwaymen, Captain Scarlett, a Frenchman returning from England, fends off the attackers. Villiers arrives shortly after and arrests the remaining highwayman, but is ungrateful to Scarlett.
