Wealthy businessman, glamorous playboy, daring adventurer - Charles Bedaux was all these and more...much more.

This acclaimed documentary tells the true story of Bedaux, who captured fame and fortune in the 1920’s by inventing a new method for modernizing industry. Before long Bedaux was hobnobbing with the rich, powerful and famous all over the globe - including Nazi Germany.

In his leisure he planned an elaborate expedition - a “champagne safari” - through the Canadian Rockies, documented for posterity by legendary cameraman Floyd Crosby (High Noon). But Bedaux’s world was about to collapse, as charges of collaboration and treason enveloped him.

Long lost archival footage and interviews with historians, writers and relatives illuminate the story of this enigmatic, megalomaniacal American industrialist whose alliance with the Nazis helped them rise to power.
