    Harry is in his London Office, playing with the window shade. Rescuing him from boredom is a stranger who offers him a bunch of money to find a stolen Cellini goblet. He is instructed to go to Instabul to find it. He finds it too easily. He is then kidnapped and taken to an island where he joins a collection of famous people also kidnapped by a mad deposed general modelled on Napoleon. One of the fellow prisoners is a famous actress that he happens to already be on very familiar terms with, if you know what I mean. She comes to his bedroom looking like a woman ready for action, but they are interrupted. He is offered the position of Secretary of State in the general's presumably forthcoming administration, which he accepts after sleeping on it. He starts advising the general along flattering lines, provoking a debate with another advisor, who shoots the general and thereby kills any fleeting hopes of a plot. Oh, yeah, I almost forgot... Suddenly, we're in Paris with Harry and the actress, who are about the chug champaigne and finish what they had earlier started. The End.moreless
