Andre Morestan (Brian Aherne) owns a Paris bicycle shop with his family. He's eager to serve in a jury. The trial has Natalie Roguin (Rita Hayworth) facing a murder charge. Andre convinces the jury to acquit. After the trial, he gives her a job at his shop. He keeps her identity a secret from his family but his son Pierre (Glenn Ford) recognizes her. His daughter Francois is overjoyed to be engaged to Robert LaCoste who owns the dance studio next door. Robert turns out to be a lascivious sleaze with his eye on Natalie.
It's a lesser old movie. The acting is broad and so are the attempts at humor. This is a remake of a French film and I'm sure a ton of jokes don't get through the translation. The trial takes place in the first thirty minutes. Andre is a childish considering the situation. It seems to be aimed as a comedy but it's not funny. After Natalie gets the job, there are some sitcom-like misunderstandings. Again it's not funny but it's still watchable. The movie feels short-changed and the shorter running time may have something to do with that.
