Plot Summary
In this 1935 musical comedy, featuring the glitzy production numbers of Busby Berkeley, Eugene Charlier (Maurice Chevalier) easily impersonates the married yet unfaithful Baron Cassini (also Chevalier) in his act. When the baron leaves for a secret out-of-country meeting, Charlier gets hired to play him again at a state reception. Both the baron and Charlier romantically toy with the baroness (Merle Oberon) and Charlier's lover, Mimi (Ann Sothern), in an amusing game of mistaken identity.
