In the 1840s, Madeline Minot (Leslie Caron) travels from France to America to visit Charles Theverner (Louis Calhern), her lover's wealthy, aging relative. Her boyfriend is fighting in the French Revolution, and he hopes the once patriotic Charles is willing to donate his money to the people's uprising. Eventually, Madeline begins to warm the old man's heart, but his devious servant Lorna Bounty (Barbara Stanwyck) also wants the cash, and she's willing to resort to deadly means for it.
