A film by René Clair set right before World War I, when men in uniform were the apple of women's eye. Gérard Philippe plays a young lieutenant who makes a bet to seduce a divorced hat-maker. Before a comic misunderstanding leads to tragedy, she succumbs to his charms, but ultimately uncovers his true intentions.
