"Gilberte Boulanger is a distinguished stage actress. Paul Séverac is her most fervent admirer. Each night, Paul attends Gilberte's performance, taking seat number 47 in the theatre. When she learns that she is facing financial ruin, Gilberte insists that the loyal occupant of seat 47 be brought to her dressing room so that she can work her charms on him. During the interval, another man, the Baron Edouard Lebray, takes Paul's seat and is mistakenly taken to see Gilberte. For the ageing baron, this is a great honour and he wastes no time in winning his way into Gilberte's affections. Later, when Paul visits Gilberte at her home to declare his love for her, the actress mistakenly thinks he has come to ask if he can marry her daughter, Loulou. Unable to disentangle himself from the misunderstandings, Paul ends up marrying Loulou, a satisfactory arrangement at first, but it isn't long before they start to fall out. When Loulou arranges to dine out with a male friend, Paul decides to take a mistress. It will take all of Gilberte's guile and charm to resolve this domestic rift. Her ex-husband, the down-to-earth gym instructor Theillard, feels obliged to lend a helping hand..."--http://frenchfilmguide.com
