I assume the French version must have been a lot better.
Back in 1937, there was a French film ("Heart of Paris") and it starred the great actor, Raimu. Now, three years later Hollywood released a remake--and I can only assume the remake wasn't as good-- partly because Raimu was a wonderful actor and because this American version just wasn't particularly inspired nor did it make a lot of sense.
When the film begins, Natalie (Rita Hayworth) is on trial for murder. Although many on the jury think she's guilty, Andre (Brian Aherne) insists for no real logical reason other than his gut feeling that she's innocent. Because he's so vehement, she is acquitted. Then, Andre invites her home to work for him and he gives her a place to live! None of this makes any sense, nor does it make any sense when inexplicably, Andre turns on his new protégé.
The film didn't make a lot of sense and I found it all a bit tedious after a while. Not a terrible film but certainly one that's easy to skip.
