In this musical, a naive entertainer is sent to Paris by a Broadway producer who wants her return with a more sophisticate, "French" persona. She does, and debuts again on Broadway as "Fifi D'Auray." She then finds herself wooed by a young mobster, and a rich man. She chooses the former until she realizes that he is a crook. In the end, she loses both men. Songs include: "If I Can't Have You," "You Can't Believe My Naughty Eyes," "Ophelia Will Fool You," and "Pilly Pom Pom Plee."
