Noix de Coco (Cocoanut) was adapted by Marcel Archard from his own stage play. The incomparable Raimu plays a prosperous horticulturist, happily married to his young second wife Marie Bell. Raimu's blissful existence is threatened when he discovers that Bell was previously a sexy nightclub chanteuse in a notorious Saigon watering hole called the Noix de Coco. He further discovers that his beloved wife may well have shared more than her singing talents with her fans. Now Raimu is obliged to keep his wife's past a deep dark secret from his snooty, super-judgmental daughter-in-law Suzet Mais.
