Lumieres de Paris (Lights of Paris) resurrects the old chestnut about a wealthy man hiding his identity so that he can romance a not-so-wealthy woman. Tino Rossi stars as a world-renowned music-hall star who chances to meet working girl Michele Alfa at an intimate café. Fearful that his image as a ladies' man will be tarnished if he devotes all his time to one girl, Rossi keeps the romance a secret, not even revealing who he is to the starry-eyed Alfa. Eventually she walks out on him, only to be on hand for a surprise reconciliation when she's chosen at random to replace Rossi's recalcitrant music-hall partner (Conchita Montenegro). Surprisingly, few of Tino Rossi's established song hits are utilized in Lumieres de Paris.
