Summary
Widescreen. The owner of Montmartre's most notorious nightspot, the Café Le Bal Du Paradis, Simone Pistache spends a great deal of her time in court, thanks to the banning of that "lewd and lascivious" dance, the Can-Can. So when her nightlife-loving lawyer and boyfriend, François Durnais, refuses to settle down and marry her, Simone decides to play up to his rival in romance, Parisian judge Philipe Forrestier, a lovestruck young jurist who's determined to make an honest woman out of her-- one way or the other
