Bare Stage/Simple Set

A crack legal secretary working for an attorney specializing in divorce cases, Helen is happy in her job until a personable young man appears and offers her the chance to go to Paris as his assistant. Unfortunately the salary is small and, debating what to do (and romantically intrigued too), Helen suddenly finds herself asked to fill in as a professional corespondent—which means being photographed in a hotel room with someone seeking to establish grounds for a divorce. It's all very matter of fact and hands off, and it also pays very well—with no income taxes involved, the operation being technically illegal. So when the regular "corespondent" announces her decision to marry and retire, Helen agrees to take over her "business" —and the money is soon pouring in. But Paris, and her now-eager suitor, cannot be put off indefinitely, and the fact that he happens to work for the Internal Revenue Service only adds to the complications. Eventually, and despite some hilarious misunderstandings, it all works out: true love finds a way, and Paris it is, underpaid but happy.
A rollicking comedy of true love vs. the complications of a very lucrative (but slightly shady) undercover business.
