Parisian tailor Maurice Courtelin (Maurice Chevalier) poses as a baron in order to collect the unpaid bills a local aristocrat (Charlie Ruggles) have been piling up. On his way to the castle, he has a confrontation with haughty Princess Jeanette (Jeanette MacDonald). When he arrives at the castle, he charms the various denizens, including Jeanette’s chattering aunts and her man-hungry cousin Valentine (Myrna Loy). Jeanette is resistant towards the newcomer, but eventually falls for his charms, telling him she will love him no matter who he is or where he is. When he helps her redesign an outfit, he confesses to her that he’s really a tailor. The entire household is outraged, and Maurice leaves. As he takes the train back to Paris, Jeanette realizes her mistake and follows him on horseback. He tells her to stay away, so she stands in front of the train. When the train stops, Maurice jumps out and they embrace as smoke from the train envelops them.
