Storyline

A rich Brazilian, Mendoza, visited Paris in 1900 and was romantically involved with the star of Offenbach's "La Vie Parisienne" which was playing at the time. Thirty five years later, he returns with his son and granddaughter, who is engaged to a young Frenchman. But Mendoza's puritanical son forbids the marriage. Mendoza and the actress's friends conspire to change his mind and soon succeed in converting him to "Parisian life". Written by Steve Crook <steve@brainstorm.co.uk>

Trivia

A re-shooting of La vie parisienne (1936) for an English audience making use of the same crew, sets and leading actors. This was quite common with early European sound films when there would often be three versions of the same film made (in German, French and English and maybe other languages) by essentially the same cast and crew.
