Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Lumieres de Ma Ville was the first production from the French-Canadian Excelsior Films. Based on a popular radio serial, the film stars Monique Leyrac as ruthlessly ambitious nightclub singer Monique Fontaine. When not trying to break up the romance between her ex-flame Roger Martin (Guy Maufette) and country gal Helene Clement (Huguette Oligny), Monique is kept busy exploiting the talents of love-struck composer Marcel (Pierre Berval). As is the case with American soap operas, the most fascinating character in Lumieres de Ma Ville is the scheming villainess. The best scenes take place on the ski slopes of the Laurentian mountains.
