A woman living in Paris feels neglected by her husband, so she decides to go to New York City and enjoy herself.
Du Barry Did All Right (1937) Online
Aristocratic Frenchwoman Irene Wainwright is hosting a formal party. Conspicuously absent is her husband, good old southern boy John Wainwright, who would rather gamble with his friends. As he refuses to ditch his gambling and as she feels compelled to lie to her guests about the reason for his absence, she, to teach him a lesson, decides to head to New York without him to have some fun. Her scheme is that he will send her money just to placate her, as she has no money of her own. So when he doesn't show up and when he eventually telegrams that he is not sending her money, she has to limit her spending and stall those to who she owes money. John has a plan of his own for his wife, while she comes up with a scheme of her own to deal with her moneyless situation while not kowtowing to John.
