Le Bois Sacre (Sacred Woods) was adapted from the play of the same name by Robert de Fiers and A. de Caillavet. Elvire Popesco stars as popular novelist Mme. Margerie, who is put out when she is not nominated for the Legion of Honor award. One of the judges, M. Champmorel (Andre Lefaur) offers to put her name in competition in exchange for a few? um?favors, but Margerie will have none of this. However, she isn't above encouraging the romance between her own husband (Victor Boucher) and Champmorel's wife (Gaby Morlay) as a method of earning the coveted prize. Marcel Dalio contributes another sparkling cameo as Mme. Champmorel's former lover, a flamboyant Russian ballet master.
