Screen star Charles Boyer made a rare return to his home turf in the Franco-Italian Paris Palace Hotel. Boyer plays Delomel, a roguish middle-aged husband who uses an attack of gout as an excuse to escape his spouse. While staying at the titular hotel, Delomel gets mixed up with manicurist Francoise (Francoise Arnoul) and garage mechanic Gerard (Roberto Rosso), both of whom are posing as wealthy socialites. Though he's wise to their subterfuge, Delomel takes a liking to Francoise and Gerard and spends the rest of the film helping them pull off their deception. The star power of Charles Boyer makes Paris Palace Hotel seem far more important a film than it really is.
