Storyline

Georgette live in Paris with her rather unexciting and effeminate husband, an actor and interpretive dancer. Meanwhile, Suzanne lives across the street, and reads romance novels while dreaming of someone more exciting than her own lackluster spouse. Each woman happens across the other's husband, and begins her dream affair. Four people: each cheating on their spouse, and none of them aware that their own spouse is cheating. Who will find out first, and how?

A delightful jazz-age bon-bon.

A delightful jazz-age bon-bon.

Lots of fun and frollick, with some lovely "art titles" and simple but effective camera tricks, keep this from being a run of the mill romantic triangle comedy.

Keep your eyes peeled for a quick-as-a-wink appearance by Myrna Loy as the maid of the Lalle household.
