"...Historically important....Brooks is a lovely, unusually idiosyncratic screen presence..."
Louise Brooks, an international screen icon in the 1920s and early 1930s, stars in this film written by the legendary René Clair (LE MILLION). Brooks plays a Parisian typist who dreams of becoming a star and, hoping to fulfill her dream, enters the "Miss Europe" contest, a contest her fiancé, André, does not want her to enter. Though she knows it may end their relationship, Brooks enters the contest and ends up being offered an opportunity to pursue both modeling and acting. André, indescribably jealous, refuses to allow her to do either, forcing her to choose between him and the career of her dreams.
