The title of this French romantic comedy is Chez Maxim's Doorman, who happens to be a fellow named Julien. The title role is essayed by an actor named Bach, who rose to fame playing Julien on stage. The story gets under way when Julien discovers that his longtime mistress (Genevieve Callix) has been unfaithful. The girl's erstwhile beau (Roger Treville) in turn abandons her, inherits a fortune, and begins romancing Julien's daughter. And that's only half of the story! Le Chasseur de Chez Maxim's was adapted by Yves Mirande and Gustave Quinson from their own stage play.
