When the husband learns that his suspicions are accurate, he tells Claude of his plan to kill Flannagan. Claude’s daughter Ariane overhears the threat and warns Frank of the coming trouble. She then plays the part of a worldly socialite with a list of conquests as long as Flannagan’s. The bemused ladies’ man returns to America the next day and Ariane, completely in love, follows his romantic escapades in the news. She sees him again in Paris the following year, and resumes her worldly guise, telling tales of former lovers when they meet at his hotel in the afternoon. Frank, amazed by the mystery girl and surprised to find himself jealous of her past, hires Claude to uncover more information about her. When the detective realizes what has happened, he asks Frank not to break his daughter’s heart.
Plot: Lovestruck conservatory student Ariane pretends to be just as much a cosmopolitan lover as the worldly mature Frank Flannagan hoping that l’amour will take hold.

Miscast Cooper Undermines This Billy Wilder Film
This film by Billy Wilder features beautiful B&W photography. Gary Cooper stars as a supposedly smooth womanizer (Frank Flannagan) who cares little for the women he beds. Audrey Hepburn plays a younger woman (Ariane Chavasse) who is intrigued by his intrigues and becomes personally involved.
Shot in France, the film conveys a cosmopolitan air that almost sells the idea that these two might connect emotionally. But Cooper is not smooth enough to pull if off (no surprise) and the relationship between the two does not convince. It’s not an issue of age; it’s about chemistry and personality. Bogart in “Sabrina” offered the same problem, though less so. As an example of another pairing that worked well despite a sizable age difference, consider Stewart and Kelly in “Rear Window”.
Frankly, I’m surprised that such obviously poor pairings plague numerous films, but apparently some believe that box office draws can overcome such issues.
This movie sickened me. I’ve always liked Gary Cooper, but he is horribly miscast as the aging, corrupt Don Juan, Flanagan. The sight of him pawing Audrey Hepburn, who doesn’t look a day over 16 is not appealing.
Maurice Chevalier, who plays Audrey’s father,(who I have never liked) actually does an adequate job.
The movie takes place in France, but Chevalier is the only one who has a French accent.
I think this movie was supposed to make us laugh. It just made me disgusted.
Not recommended. 3/10
