Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Grain de Beaute (Beauty Spot) stars Simone Gerdan as the footloose wife of cabinet attache Roger Treville. Though she tries to remain loyal to her husband, Gerdan defies his orders to stay away from a fancy masked ball. While heavily disguised, she is wooed by young Roger Treville, who follows her home. Hoping to send Treville home happy without compromising herself, Gerdan asks her maid to don her costume and mask -- and that's when the fun begins. Previously filmed in a German-language version, Grain de Beaute ran into censorship problems in the U.S. for showing a husband and wife in bed together (Sacre bleu!).
