Inconnue de Monte Carlo (Unknown of Monte Carlo) centers around heroine Dita Parlo, accomplice of clever cardsharp Jules Berry. Falling in love with playboy Claude Lehmann, Parlo tries to dissuade Berry from fleecing Lehmann's wealthy brother Albert Prejean. It's something of a dual regeneration: Parlo turns honest, while Lehmann becomes a responsible member of society. The only person who doesn't come out the better for the experience is Berry, who after being betrayed by everyone around him rather understandably blows his brains out. The film's genuine Monte Carlo locations are rather more interesting than the film itself. Inconnue de Monte Carlo was simultaneously filmed in an Italian-language version, directed by Mario Soldati.
