His Tiger Lady was adapted by Ernest Vajda from Super of the Gaiety, a play by Alfred Savoir. Adolphe Menjou stars as Henri, a "super," or extra, in a lavish Parisian musical revue. Falling in love with a beautiful but icy Duchess (Evelyn Brent), Henri tries to impress her by borrowing an exotic costume and posing as a rajah. This masquerade permits Henri access to the Duchess' boudoir, but before their romance can be consummated he confesses to his deception and walks out of her room. The next day, however, Henri is delighted to find the Duchess backstage at the Revue, dressed up as a chorus girl and with that "yes yes" look in her eyes.
