The scene is set in front of a French chateau. The camera chases improbable incidents across the screen. Many are constructed out of one of Lawrence Jordan's favorite engravings illustrators: Louis Poyet. Duels occur on a tight rope. Heavier-than-air machines fly (and sometimes crash). Below, guns spear exploding spheres. The timing of the animation is exquisite, existing in an atmosphere balanced between frenzy and delight.
