Set within the vibrant dancehalls and historic crime corridors of 1940s Paris, a singer with "stars in her eyes" ignores the protest of her covetous husband and pursues a meeting with a lecherous movie financier. When her husband attempts to crash the rendevous, murder ensues. Enter the detective, whose seasoned instincts lead him down a circuitous path of alibis.

Made in 1947! It's always a delight to find an old film that is so authentic in setting, but this was a detective story too-and with a surprise ending. I also noticed that the French got away with showing more of the female body than the US censors of the time would have allowed.
