Synopsis

Monsieur Cognac, a poodle star of French films, runs away from his owner, Giselle Ponchon, also a film star, and meets Terry Williams, an American musician working in Paris. Terry and the dog, who loves liquor, engage in an all-night drinking spree, and when Giselle and her father finally find the poodle with Terry, Giselle and Terry fall in love. They marry despite the objections of her father, but Cognac becomes jealous of Terry, and the clever dog's scheming makes a shambles of the wedding night as Terry drinks a sleeping potion intended for Cognac. Giselle refuses to leave the dog behind for a honeymoon, and she and Terry part. Terry solves their problem by arranging a romance between Cognac and Pink Poupée, a female poodle, and he and Giselle are reconciled.
