Dany Robin stars as Dany, the ingenuous "front girl" for a gang of car thieves. It is Dany's job to lure the motorist away while her cohorts steal his vehicle. The plot proper gets under way when one of Dany's former victims, artist Marc (Georges Marchal), runs into her again. Reluctant to turn the girl over to the police, Marc takes her home with him. In Pygmalion-Galatea fashion, he transforms Dany into a much-sought-after artist's model. Romantic complications ensue, leading to a not-too-surprising denouement. La Voyageuse Inattendre secured American bookings because of the "participation" of writer/director Billy Wilder; in fact, the film was a remake of a much-earlier Wilder screenplay.
