Getting rich

Danielle Darrieux plays a French woman called Nicole who is desperately looking for a job to get some cash.Without any luck. But she finds a better way to get rich.Nicole gets a rich man called Bill Duncan (Louis Hayward).Bill's friend Jim Trevor (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) knows Nicole's nasty little plan and tries to stop it.The Rage of Paris from 1938 is nice comedy with good actors.Beautiful Danielle Darrieux is perfect in her role.Same thing with Douglas Fairbanks Jr.Mr. Fairbanks died last May at the age of 90.If you want to see a good old Hollywood comedy this is a movie for you to see.The movie has a happy ending and I'm a nuts for happy endings.
