Nicole Picot is working as a model in a Paris dress salon when she is picked by Stefan Orloff to help him convince a wealthy investor that he is well connected. She is to wear an expensive dress and dine with them because she has "class." The scheme works and both Stefan and Nicole become very wealthy over the course of a few years. Stefan is a "financier" while Nicole opens her own dress salon. But while Nicole's business is above board, Stefan's isn't, and eventually his web of deceit and fraud begins to unravel. Not always honest with her either, Stefan enlists Nicole's help one last time to avoid prison.
Once TO EVERY WOMAN COMES A LOVE LIKE THIS! And once to every man the chance to prove worthy of it! (Print Ad- Greenfield Recorder-Gazette, ((Greenfield, Mass.)) 9 March 1937)
Did You Know?
The large biplane that Nicole and Stefan fly from London to Geneva midway through the film is a Handley Page H.P.45, one of only four built, each of which had a unique name. The one in this film is "Horatius" as its registration, G-AAXD, can clearly be seen in the scenes of the aircraft taking off and landing. It was destroyed on November 7, 1939 as it was making an emergency landing on a golf course after returning from France on a transport mission.
Unfortunately there are no surviving examples of this plane as all four that were built had been destroyed by 1940. See more
As Anthony Wayne and Suzanne are deplaning in Geneva, the airplane in the background, that they got off, is not one in which we see them land. See more
I always had a great big squash of a heart. The rest of me grew up later to match it.
