Storyline

The battle of the sexes as drawing room social satire. Philippe, a middle-aged newspaper editor, has lived for six years with Paulette, a successful stage actress. He tells her friend Claudine, a realistic and enterprising reporter, that he's thinking of proposing. Into the mix steps Carl Erickson, a charming Hollywood matinée idol in Paris briefly. He meets Paulette, sees her act (his box seat compliments of Philippe), and sets out to seduce her. The next two days bring talk, tears, separation, despair, surprises, and, perhaps, reconciliation as characters speak "exactly half the truth." It's a quadrille of changing partners.

"Quadrille" was remade by Valerie Mercier in 1997,with some success.Although I like Sacha Guitry's works very much,"Quadrille" is not in my top ten of his works.I'd rather have his historical extravaganzas or "Ils Etaient Neuf Celibataires " or "La Vie D'un Honnête Homme" ,probably his neglected masterpiece ,any day.

More than other Guitry efforts , it's mostly stage filmed production.It's very talky,particularly this interminable scene between the author and Gaby Morlay which occupies the center of the movie .Guitry has some good lines (I dig the one when the says to the American actor "you're not used to thinking" ) ,but not much ,compared to "Les Perles De La Couronne" in which almost all the lines are pure gold .There are only four characters (unless Pauline Carton ,cast as usual as the chamber maid ,counts : she is the only one to see the American male star completely naked!): the old beau (Guitry) his mistress ,a journalist and an American buck .Hence the title .
