La Petite Chocolatiere (The Chocolate Girl) was based on a popular play by Paul Gavault. Jacqueline Francell plays the title character, the daughter of wealthy candy manufacturer Andre Dubosc. When her car breaks down in front of the home of government clerk Pierre Bertin, Francell is forced by circumstances to spend the night with Bertin's blue-collar family. Initially resistant at first, our heroine falls in love with Bertin, with a little assistance from the hero's best friend, eccentric artist Raimu. The film represents one of the earliest screen appearances by movie "bombshell" Simone Simon.
