As jaunty as its title, On Ze Boulevard stars Lew Cody in his customary role of a Parisian roue, this time a headwaiter named Gaston Pasqual. Winning a huge sum of money in a football pool, Pasqual tosses aside his rented tux and begins living the life of a spendthrift. Willing to spend any amount on anything, our hero proves easy pickin's for a pair of sharp swindlers. But Pasqual's faithful housemaid Musette (Renee Adoree), who heretofore has stood quietly on the sidelines while her boss has been making a fool of himself, takes action in the final scene to save Pasqual from utter ruin. Four screenwriters were responsible for this French souffle, ranging from noted playwright F. Hugh Herbert to Hollywood hack W. Scott Darling.
