The title of this French romantic farce translates as You Can't Fool Antoinette. The eponymous heroine, played by Simone Renant, is the new wife of Comte Hubert de Premaillac (Armand Bernard). Having wagered that Antoinette will remain faithful to him, Hubert hopes to keep his young bride too tired to wander, so he exposes her to a surfeit of wild Parisian nightlife. It is Hubert, however, who winds up pooping out, while Antoinette continues her revelry with handsome De Varini (Pierre Stephen). Nothing of an untoward nature really happens, of course -- but Hubert suspects that something has, and that's when the plot really goes into high drive.
