Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Pere de Mademoiselle (Father of the Girl) is all about a star-struck lass from rural France who takes a job as the secretary to a glamorous actress. When her parents come to the big city, the girl is beside herself: she's been claiming in her letters that she's become a show-business success. The understanding actress agrees to switch places with the secretary, and then le joie begins. Arletty makes a meal of the role of the big-hearted actress, while Andre Lugiet is equally enjoyable as the girl's self-important provincial father. Only one cavil: the plot is a bit too thin to spread over 100 minutes.
