Henry Decoin cast again his then-wife Danielle Darrieux as the lead of a pretty good melodrama;an orphan ,Darrieux follows her best friend's not so good piece of advice:pretending to be a wealthy writer's natural child.There is some excuse:her grandmother passed away and she couldn't pay the rent anymore and continue her law studies ;besides ,every time she thinks she's got a job,the macho men want to abuse her! The Cinderella syndrome was much better applied on "Premier rendez-vous" where Darrieux played an orphan again.But Darrieux's charm is irresistible -to think that she's still working,in 2007!-.
