A Gentleman of Paris
Directed with his usual dry wit by the talented and underrated Harry D'Arrast, Gentleman of Paris was based on a short story by Roy Horniman. Adolphe Menjou stars as the Marquis de Marignan, an unabashed womanizer who spends the better part of his life escaping the wrath of outraged husbands. The Marquis is regularly rescued from disaster by Joseph (Nicholas Sousannin), his faithful valet. But when it appears as though his boss has been dallying with his own wife, the valet cooks up a scheme to publicly humiliate the Marquis by "exposing" him as a card cheat. The ruse works, but the wily Marquis manages to have the last laugh by faking his own suicide and returning to "haunt" the hapless valet into confessing his ruse. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
