This impudent comedy by Roussin is one of those French frolics in which the external triangle is subject to rational examination. Shortly after the curtain goes up Nina's husband confronts Nina's lover with a revolver. He comes to do his duty as the protector of the social order. But he has, unfortunately, taken a bad cold, and finds he must hand over the gun to the lover while he fetches the necessary medication from his pockets. Nina arrives. The surprised husband hides behind a bar. When he is finally discovered, Nina responds with wifely solicitude for his health, as if nothing else in the world were wrong. The lover is uncomfortable at the sight of this wretched husband, while the husband is envious of the lover's life and charm. It's a fine French how-de-do, Alan Webb, Gloria Swanson, and David Niven played the principles on the Broadway boards.
