Vivianne Romance was,along with Ginette Leclerc ,one of the two bad gals of the French cinema.Her most interesting parts were bitches in Duvivier's "Panique" and "La Belle Equipe" among others femmes fatales ("Naples Au Baiser De Feu" "Carmen" ).
Maurice Cloche is no match for Duvivier;his screenplay is derivative and almost devoid of interest;this is a long flashback which tells us how a country girl rises to stardom;her attentive escort(Georges Flament) is now a stage manager,now a boxer ,now a journalist ,and he is not particularly handsome as the romantic young lead .
Best moment:Romance loses her petticoat on stage much to the theater owner's dissatisfaction (but to the audience's joy!)
