~The Cardboard Lover~
~375-54: Nils Asther & Marion Davies~
~Plot Synopsis~
Sally (Marion Davies), an American autograph hound grand-touring Europe with some schoolmates,
sets her cap for André (Nils Asther), a French tennis champion. She discovers that André's
sweetheart, Simone (Jetta Goudal), is not on the level; and André, who is unfortunately infatuated
with that undulating French coquette, hires Sally to keep him apart from Simone. Sally dogs the pair
and never allows them a moment's peace, finally moving into André's house in order to convince
Simone that André is through with her. André eventually comes to love the naïve but eccentric
American girl and takes her for his wife.
