Quand on Est Belle (When She's Pretty) is the French-language version of the MGM drama The Easiest Way. Lily Damita takes over from Constance Bennett in the role of Laura, a poor-but-proud department store clerk. Discovered by a commercial artist, Laura lands a job as a model, and before long she's the mistress of model-agency owner Brockton (Andre Luguet). She uses the money lavished on her to support her family, but eventually they turn on her, considering the money "tainted" and her method of getting it immoral. Rejected by her loved ones, Laura leaves for Argentina, where she inaugurates a romance with wealthy rancher Johnny (Rolla Norman) Their marriages plans are interrupted when a group of insurgents threaten to topple the government. Separated from Johnny, Laura promises to wait for him until the trouble blows over, but before long she's back with Brockton again. Several devastating setbacks later, poor Laura finds herself walking the streets, still looking for love in all the wrong places.
