Plot Summary
Claire (Marlene Dietrich) is a French woman in search of a rich husband in 1841 New Orleans. She decides the best way to lure a wealthy suitor is to masquerade as a countess, and soon she attracts two prosperous possible partners (Roland Young, Bruce Cabot). But her ruse risks unraveling when an old associate (Mischa Auer) appears, dropping hints of her salacious past. To rebuff his sabotage, Claire invents a troubled cousin, then impersonates her, adding a new persona to her subterfuge.
