Based on the Alice Duer Miller play Come Out Of the Kitchen, the Paramount musical Honey was filmed in several foreign languages for European distribution. The French version, titled Cherie, starred Mono Goya and Saint-Granier in the roles originated by Nancy Carroll and Skeets Gallegher. Down on their luck, aristocratic Olivia and Charles Dangerfield are forced to rent out their ancestral mansion to nouveau riche Mrs. Falkner and her daughter Cora. Remaining in the house as the butler, Charles falls in love with Cora, while his sister Olivia (retained as Mrs. Falkner's maid) is likewise smitten by Cora's ex-fiancee Burton. For French consumption, Cherie makes time for the routines of popular Jewish dialect comedian Marc Hely, playing a character who didn't appear in the original Honey.
