It’s 1936 Paris and every femme with a de rigueur sense of high fashion wears the creations of Maison Picot, the design house that’s so chic, so trendy…and so very much a house of cards. It’s secretly used by financial flimflammer Stefan Orloff as entry to the highest level of society, a level from which he and elegant Nicole Picot are destined to take a very hard fall. As Picot, star Kay Francis finds a perfect role for her trademark blend of ’30s sophistication and couture. And as Orloff, impeccable Claude Rains marks the first of his 10 feature films with legendary Warner director Michael Curtiz. To echo a line from the most famous Rains-Curtiz collaboration, Stolen Holiday is the beginning of a beautiful screen friendship.
