Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Hoping to scare wealthy young Roland Toutain into getting married to his longtime fiancee Blanche Montel, a phony fortune-teller is hired to inform Toutain that he is to die very soon. But thanks to a case of mistaken identity, the fortune-teller delivers this message to middle-aged gym instructor Louis-Jacques Boucot. Instead of heading towards the altar, however, Boucot decides to live his last few months on earth to the fullest -- and as a result becomes a millionaire at the gaming tables of Monte Carlo. Upon learning that he isn't going to kick the bucket after all, our hero pretends to be at death's door anyway, all for the purpose of patching up the rocky romance between Toutain and Montel. Le Bonne Aventure (The Nice Adventure) was also filmed in a German-language version.
