Thursday 7 July 2005, Cinéma Lumière 1, Il Cinema Ritrovato, Bologna. Following Bulletin Pathé: AD the bon-vivant is alerted by the noises of apaches fighting over their queen's heart, a dark-haired gigolette. Mesmerized by her as well, Boireau follows her to their underworld den, starts to sport apache wear. The fellow gangsters do everything to get rid of Boireau. But the gigolette is conquered by her suitor's perseverance. – Lots of trick gags, including one where the gangsters bury Boireau alive, but in a cross-section image we see him dig a tunnel through the earth like a mole.
