The opening title card reads:
1847In the gay half-world of Paris, the gentlemen of the day met the girls of the moment at certain theatres, balls and gambling clubs, where the code was discretion ~~ but the game was romance.
This is the story of one of those pretty creatures who lived on the quicksands of popularity ~~ Marguerite Gautier, who brightened her wit with champagne ~ and sometimes her eyes with tears.
