Synopsis by Hal Erickson
It all begins when astronomer Charles (Michel Simon) spots a heretofore undiscovered exploding star while peering through his telescope. While calling his colleagues with the news, Charles inadvertently eavesdrops on a young girl, threatening suicide. In the interests of humanity, Charles decides to try to prevent this tragedy, thereby getting himself entangled with a narcotics ring and several nubile French chorines. Brigitte Aubry plays the would-be suicide with a sharp sense of comic timing (yes, this is a comedy), while comedian Robert Lamoreaux offers a virtual reenactment of his Parisian nightclub routine. English-language prints of Femmes de Paris were purged of the original's bare-bosom shots.
