Clara Bow's career as one of Hollywood's liveliest leading ladies was drawing to a close when she made this early sound farce, one of her few talkies. Larry Charters (Ralph Forbes) is a highly successful songwriter who is growing weary of life in the public eye. Hoping for a break, Larry convinces his friend Bob (Richard "Skeets" Gallagher) to impersonate him as he takes a well deserved vacation in the French Riviera. While trying to get a room at a hotel, both Larry and an attractive young American tourist, Norma Martin (Bow), are flummoxed by the fact that they speak no French and that the desk clerk speaks no English. Things get much more complicated when they discover that the desk clerk isn't a desk clerk at all -- he is the local magistrate, and instead of renting them a pair of rooms, he has just married them. Three years after making this film, Clara Bow announced her retirement from the screen at the age of 28.
