It is difficult enough for Marion (Danielle Darrieux) to be an actress who is rapidly approaching the has-been stage; after all, she was once a great tragedienne. She must also cope with the insistent attentions of a young man (Richard Fontana) who is infatuated with her. This pleases neither the boy's fiancee nor Marion's longtime companion, a theatrical impresario (Jean Le Poulain). In this musical comedy, the actress tries many methods for getting rid of the boy; one that backfires miserably is her pretense of being a drunken old harridan. This only convinces the lad that she really needs his help. Finally, she weans him from her by getting him hooked on a much more demanding mistress: she gives him stage training. This done, she can send him back into the impatiently awaiting arms of his fiancee and resume her own life. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
