This harmless French low-budgeter was designed as a vehicle for singing idol Luis Mariano. The story finds poor-boy Marco (Mariano) spending every Wednesday evening romancing his wealthy lady love Nina (Nicole Maurey) at the later's lavish villa. This ideal set-up is ruined by the intervention of Marco's cloddish foster father (Jean Tissier). A former carnival huckster, Marco's father tries to "promote" his son by claiming that every girl in town is after him. This deception serves only to break Nina's heart and to delay the inevitable happy ending for at least 15 minutes.
