Delilah did not need to cut his hair
18 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

A subject which was familiar in the French thirties: the aristocrat who is forced to marry (money match) a nouveau riche.Abetted by a greedy mother (Gabrielle Dorziat),and a brother/playboy ,a young woman (Gaby Morlay) marries a less-than-handsome greybeard ,Jacques(Harry Baur).This business man holds the Bourse de Paris (Stock Exchange)in his hand.He is ruthless,and when it comes to ruin an "ennemy" ,he does not think twice.

Both confess they do not love each other.Anne -Marie is having a wild time at night with her beau,a womanizer who enjoys the "legs" game (worth the price of admission)whereas her hubby is brooding.But she soon realizes that in those crazy nights ,"life has lost its mystery and that love is blind and cannot find her" .For her,Jacques will shake the pillars of the temple,as it happens ,the stock exchange.Can poverty buy happiness?
