Synopsis

Tamarind Brooks, widowed for a year, sails for Paris in search of romance and adventure. Aboard ship she meets many socialites--among them, Gerry Morgan, a successful young lawyer; Victor, an alcoholic nightclub dancer; and his partner and wife, Valli, who plans to divorce him in Paris to marry Ivan Bastikoff, a Russian violinist. Although Tam encourages many men, it is Gerry who falls in love and proposes marriage; however, she rejects him. In Paris, Tam leases the modernistic town house of the Marquise de la Fousbouget, who arranges for her to meet tout Paris, including José, a Spanish baritone with whom she has a fling while arranging for Valli's divorce. Tam and Gerry separate as the result of an argument and cause a fight between Bastikoff and José. After a spree with Victor, Tam passes out; and the next morning, assuming they have had sexual intercourse, she agrees to marry him; then, realizing her error, she joins Gerry aboard a Dornier D-OX bound for New York, and they are married as the plane flies over the Statue of Liberty and Broadway.
