Unit Set/Multiple Settings

A naughty French dalliance in which the deceived are themselves deceived. Back in the days of duchesses and cavaliers there lived a widow who supported her gigolo by money and gems rained upon her by a rich but hesitant suitor. The gigolo goes so far to insure his annuities that he plants his own valet in the service of the suitor, and the valet's girlfriend in the employ of the widow. But alas! all is not as it seems. For the hesitant suitor who is being stultified by the widow and the gigolo is himself a deceiver, being married and hence not free to wed if he would. All is disclosed in a party scene to which the suitor's wife herself is invited; and only the servants escape unscathed—and rich.
