  • "Un vieillard riche vit sous la coupe d'une gouvernante hypocrite qui convoite son héritage. Le petit-fils du vieillard démasque la gouvernante en lui projetant le film "Tartuffe" tiré de la pièce de Molière. À la fin de la projection, le vieillard comprend qu'il se trouve dans la même situation qu'Orgon en face de Tartuffe et chasse l'intrigante.
