Synopsis

Film about Victor Derval, an actor in 1930 Paris. Victor Derval has just celebrated the final performance of his most recent hit, when lovely young Lisa accosts the great actor on a foggy Paris bridge. Getting Lisa work as an extra in a new sound film he's in, Derval soon invites her to be his private secretary and to move into his house, where he lives with his rebellious son Paul. Father and son become smitten with Lisa, whose love for the stage is stronger than her sense of loyalty.
