"After they elope and honeymoon in Europe, Stella and Victor 'Vicky' Hallam sail back to New York City, where Vicky's large family lives. Although Stella expresses immediate reservations about spending their first night back at Vicky's parents' home, Vicky insists that they must attend his mother's weekly Tuesday night get-together. At the dock, the delicate and artistically inclined Stella first encounters Vicky's brothers and their wives, including the crude jokester Walter and his plump, envious wife Grace. Then, at the old family home, she meets 'Mom,' the matriarch of the Hallam family who feigns fainting spells to get attention, and 'Pop,' Vicky's kind but meek father. Although she attempts to please Mom and the rest of Vicky's family, Stella faces petty criticism and snubbing from them and, as a result, avoids seeing them. After repeated excuses, however, Vicky, who is oblivious to his family's bullying, pressures Stella to attend that Tuesday night's dinner, and Stella reluctantly agrees. Because she wants to finish a bust of Vicky that she is sculpting in an art class, however, Stella causes them to show up late for the meal. Unable to endure Mom's criticisms about her 'Bohemian' life style, Stella bristles with anger and retreats to the kitchen. Soon after, Jerry, Vicky's grown nephew, arrives at the house and is introduced to Stella. Struck by his young aunt, Jerry confides in her about his artistic ambitions, which already have been threatened by his domineering family, and asks to see her alone at another time. Instead, Stella invites the entire family to spend the next Tuesday night at her place, but tells Jerry that he may drop by her home whenever he pleases. When Jerry does show up, Stella, who earlier was unable to talk Vicky into walking in the rain with her, agrees to go out with him. During the walk, Jerry confesses to Stella his romantic interest, but is soundly discouraged by her. At the next, much anticipated Tuesday dinner, Mom fakes weakness and takes to Vicky's bed, while the other Hallam women gossip about Stella behind her back. They then insist that Jerry, who earlier in the evening had been rejected by Stella, dance with and kiss his aunt, causing Stella to cringe with discomfort. Finally, Jerry hotly denounces his callous relatives, breaks Vicky's bust and storms out of the house. The dinner now ruined, the guests leave, and Vicky, who is still unaware of Jerry's feelings, rails against Stella. When Stella refuses to give in to her husband's demands that she apologize and obey him, Vicky leaves for his parents' home in a huff. Jerry then returns to Stella's and, after a full confession of love, kisses her and insists that she is as unhappy as he. The next morning, Stella goes to the Hallams' to tell Vicky that because his family 'speaks another language,' she is going away for a time to debate her future. While she goes upstairs to deal with Mom, Jerry's parents show up, distressed because Jerry failed to come home the previous night. When Jerry finally arrives, his parents confront him, and he admits that he is in love with a married woman. Eventually, Jerry reveals that it is Stella whom he loves, but to protect his wife, Vicky pretends that he knew about the infatuation from the start and that both he and Stella laughed about it. After Jerry storms away hurt, Stella reveals Vicky's lie to the Hallams and, while maintaining her innocence in the affair, leaves the house. To Stella's delight, Vicky defies his family and follows his wife into the rain"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

'After a fashionable New York party, drunken socialite Donnie Wainwright convinces Venice Muir, a shy, intelligent heiress, to elope with him to Paris, then leaves with another woman before his Europe-bound ship departs. Determined to become the charming flirt she believes Donnie desires, Venice sails to Paris alone and hires Guy Bryson, a broke, unemployed American, to be her 'gigolo.' By inventing gossip about Venice's romantic past and strategically introducing her to a number of eligible bachelors, Guy quickly transforms Venice into the most desirable woman in Paris. When Donnie arrives in the city for a short business trip, he is shocked by Venice's entourage of admirers, which includes Rene, the Viscomte de la Thenardier. On Guy's advice, Venice teases the dumbfounded, jealous Donnie with calculated indifference and flirts openly with her other suitors. Then, on the night that Donnie is to leave Paris, Rene, who is heavily in debt to a married woman, proposes to Venice during a lavish party. Venice gracefully rejects Rene and accompanies Donnie to the train station. Just before his train pulls away, Donnie also proposes to Venice, but she is distracted by the arrival of Guy, who informs her that Rene has committed suicide. Although Venice knows that Rene's death was related to his bankruptcy, the newspapers report that the viscomte killed himself because of her rejection, and Venice's reputation as a femme fatale blossoms. Depressed, Venice sails back to New York with Guy and is greeted by newspaper headlines announcing that Guy's wife is suing her for alienation of affection. After saying goodbye to her 'gigolo, ' Venice attends another party, where she is sought after by every man except Donnie, who now rejects her because of her supposed indiscretions. Furious at Donnie's hypocrisy and lack of faith, Venice spurns him, but eventually accepts his apologies and his proposal"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
