During a school revue at which she gets to show off her singing talents, Félicie Nanteuil meets the well-known actor Aimé Cavalier, sent by the Odéon for a poetry reading. Félicie is a big fan of Cavalier and he admires her beauty. The actor persuades himself that the young woman has talent and gives her some lessons in diction, which turn out to be a pretext for her becoming his mistress.


Based on the novel of the same name by Anatole France
