Synopsis
Record-breaking aviator Roland Toutain, fresh from a trans-Atlantic jaunt, addresses a radio audience from the tarmac, lamenting the absence of his lover, to whom he dedicated his flight. Unfortunately she's Nora Gregor, wife of Marquis Marcel Dalio, who's got mistress troubles of his own. Complicated enough when in Paris, but then the Marquis invites all to a shooting party at his chateau--with the gameskeeper, local poacher and Gregor's maid adding their own below-stairs triangle.
