Summary Stylish and sophisticated, the film follows vocalist Toni LeBrun (Corinne Griffith), who leaves her family's bakery for Budapest to become an opera singer,unaware that she has contracted to perform as a chorus dancer at the Palais de Paris, a cabaret run by the decadent and delightfully menacing Madame Bauer (Maude George). Toni soon escapes to Monte Carlo with the cabaret's seamstress, Rosa (Louise Dresser), after warding off the wily cabaret patron, Baron Henri D'Avril (Lowell Sherman). At the deluxe Hotel Eden, Toni attracts the attention of potential suitor Richard Dupont (Charles Ray), but she's in danger of being exposed before he asks for her hand. Dueling attention from Richard's uncle, Colonel Dupont (Edward Martindel), and a surprise guest create further romantic adventures for the couple. Directed by Lewis Milestone.Featuring: Corrine Griffith, Maude George, Louise Dresser, Lowell Sherman, Charles Ray and Edward Martindel
