I agree it is old, it is of an other age, but it's charming. Suzy Delair is a bitch, ok it's true, but she looks so "parisienne". Fine legs, pretty woman singing like a sea lion but looking like a goddess (of the after ww2 period). Jouvet is also perfect as usual. The action happens in the music hall world, where a young singer (S. Delair) try to becomes a star. Fine girls, bad boys, money, guns, music hall. It is a caricature of "Ca c'est Paris" of the early fifties.
