Summary
 

Based on Shakespeare's Two Gentlemen Of Verona --- True-hearted Valentine and his skirt-chasing pal Proteus (dubbed "The Perfume General", after a famous literary character) are in the army. On a visit home, Proteus woos Julia, Valentine's pretty and vain sister. Meantime, Valentine is much taken with Silvia, Proteus' tomboy cousin. For political reasons, Proteus' uncle (who is also their commanding officer, General Sze) presses Silvia to marry Thurio. To further this plan, the general frames Valentine in a trumped-up court-martial. As a result, Valentine becomes a Robin Hood figure, leading a band of righteous bandits. --- Silent movie with Chinese and English intertitles.
