Jean Pierre (Roland Alexandre), an aspiring composer, falls in love with seemingly impoverished flower girl Denise (Geraldine Page). In truth, Denise is a popular actress en route from a costume party. Fortuitously, she is also the star of a musical revue, and, as such, secretly tries to use her clout to give Jean Pierre his Big Break. Upon learning that Denise is not a flower girl, and that she is engaged to her director, Jean Pierre angrily walks out of her life. Anyone who's seen a 1930s Warner Bros. musical will know how this one turns out. Pepping up the proceedings in Plaisirs de Paris is a sensuous striptease number, which was usually excised from American prints.
