Le Cordon Bleu doesn't refer to a ham-and-veal delicacy, though there is plenty of ham in this Gallic comedy. The scene is a posh Parisian hotel-restaurant, which ends up a hotbed of infidelity and mistaken identity. Hotel cook Regina (Cora Lynn) is romantically involved with her boss Octave (Pierre Bertin), the husband of Irma (Jeanne Herbling). Mistaken for another woman, Irma is passionately pursued by Bernereau (Baron Fils), whose wife gets involved with someone else's husband, whose wife gets involved with . . . This keeps going for 85 minutes, by which time the audience is as winded as the cast.
