Nicole has no job and is several weeks behind with her rent. Her solution to her problem is to try and snare a rich husband. Enlisting the help of her friend Gloria and the maitre'd at a ritzy New York City hotel, the trio plot to have Gloria catch the eye of Bill Duncan, a handsome millionaire staying at the hotel.

After becoming an international sensation in "Mayerling" (1936), pretty French Danielle Darrieux (as Nicole de Cortillion) arrives in America. Mistaken for a nude model, Ms. Darrieux gets caught in the middle of undress by debonair Douglas Fairbanks Jr. (as Jim Trevor), who gets to utter the amusing line "I'm all ears" (while looking his Gable best). How director Henry Koster gets Mr. Fairbanks to keep his eyes glued upon Darrieux' face after she takes her shirt off is good acting.
When Darrieux is about to be evicted from her room, she "adopted" as a "niece" by matronly Helen Broderick (as Gloria Patterson). "The only job for a woman is marriage," Ms. Broderick tells Darrieux, "There's nothing wrong with you that a nice rich husband couldn't cure." Broderick conspires to marry Darrieux and millionaire Louis Hayward (as Bill Duncan), with the help of busboy turned head waiter Mischa Auger (as Mike). But, Fairbanks has other plans for the French beauty.
****** The Rage of Paris (6/9/38) Henry Koster ~ Danielle Darrieux, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Helen Broderick, Louis Hayward
