In post war Germany,a young American director is filming a movie about a long lost and reputedly charming Graf from the mid-Victorian era at said individual's castle. The lead playing the Graf falls down the stairs and is unable to perform when,lo and behold, a mysterious stranger and his faithful servant Franz Bagel arrive on the scene not only in the nick of time but are eerily perfect for the part of the Graf, or Highborn. When the butler and other servants snap to attention at the sight of this new Graf and the two strangers show an incredible familiarity with the details of Victorian life the producer and director wonder where did these two come from. Ghosts walk at night, suits of armour clank about, and a daring rapier fight wows the film crew. There is romance but no sex; this was written in the 1950s.
