Showgirl Eve, stranded in Paris without a sou, befriends taxi driver Tibor Czerny, then gives him the slip to crash a party. There she meets Helene Flammarion and her gigolo Picot, who's attracted to Eve. Helene's scheming husband Georges enlists Eve's aid in taking Picot away from his wife. It works well... at first.

After Wilder and Brackett fought with director Mitchell Leisen to make sure as much of their work made on the screen as possible, Wilder was convinced he had to direct the scripts they wrote and Brackett was convinced he had to produce. See more »

This is a wonderful film in which Eve Peabody, a homeless would-be blues singer, is allowed into the elite Parisian society by Barrymore. While posing as the Baroness Czerny of Hungary, Tibor Czerny (Ameche), a cab driver,not royalty, pursues the lovely Peabody. It is delightful to see Peabody's constant deceptions grow larger and larger throughout the film until she finally decides the high life isn't really for her. I highly recommend Midnight.
