A ditzy American girl visiting Monte Carlo is hired by a tennis champ to be his "cardboard lover"--to pretend to be in love with him so he can teach his two-timing fiancé a lesson and win her back. What he doesn't realize is that the girl isn't pretending--she actually is in love with him, and she sets out to win him for herself.

Although based on the play "Her Cardboard Lover," this version has virtually nothing to do with the play. It uses the characters of Andre, Simone, and Albine but Marion Davies
's character of Sally Baxter is not in the play at all. This is one reason why the title was changed to The Cardboard Lover
(1928). See more
