Summary "The owner of Montmartre's most notorious nightspot, the Café Le Bal Du Paradis, Simone Pistache (MacLaine) spends a great deal of her time in court, thanks to the banning of that 'lewd and lascivious' dance, the can-can! So when her nightlife-loving lawyer and boyfriend, François Durnais (Sinatra), refuses to settle down and marry her, Simone decides to play up to his rival in romance, Parisian judge Philipe Forrestier (Jourdan), a lovestruck young jurist who's determined to make an honest woman out of her-- one way or the other"--Container.
