Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Un Trou dans le Muir (The Hole In the Wall) is based on the play by Yves Mirande. The plot is set in motion by the discovery of an ancient document, indicating that a doomed nobleman during the French Revolution had hidden a fortune in gold within a wall in his palace. Keeping this information to himself, a cagey barrister (Jean Murat) gains access to the palace by taking a job as the family chauffeur. The owner's daughter (Marguertie Moreno) falls in love with the "chauffeur," never realizing that his only interest in her household is purely monetary. When the barrister finally determines that the gold is hidden somewhere in the heroine's boudoir, he really begins pouring on the charm. Will the girl tumble to his true intentions -- and will the barrister end up falling in love with her for real?
