A long forgotten Cole Porter gem, based on the play By Candlelight by Siegfried Geyer, Karl Farkas, and Robert Katscher. Maria, maid to Mme. Baltin, impersonates her mistress while carrying out an assignation with the Baron de Romer's valet Gaston, whom she believes to be the Baron himself. The Baron discovers the pair, but, being a good sport, he assumes the role of his servant in order to assist Gaston in his romantic pursuit. But things get messy when Mme. Baltin discovers her maid's deceit.
