This late-30s gem is an engaging spoof that features the U.S. film debut of the French acting beauty Daniell Darrieux. She appears as a French model who's come to New York to find a job. Things go a little awry in her first interview when she applies for a nude modeling position and gets the addresses mixed up. When she shows up at the wrong place and starts disrobing, the man at the desk (Douglas Fairbanks) thinks she's a trouble-causing hussy and orders her to leave. Things look up for the frustrated model when she teams up with an ex-actress and a clever waiter who together convince her that as her agents, they'll be able to make things happen for her. And they do.
