Release Notes
Synopsis: Columbia's The Lady in Question is a remake of the French Gribouille,
a Raimu vehicle from 1939. Brian Aherne plays Andre Morestan, the seeming
contently paterfamilias of a bourgeois Parisian family. Summoned for jury duty,
Morestan at first believes that accused murderess Natalie Rougin (Rita Hayworth)
is guilty, but eventually takes pity on the homeless girl and invites her to
live with his family after her acquittal. Things get pretty dicey when
Morestan's impressionable young son Pierre (Glenn Ford) falls in love with the
enigmatic Natalie and begins committing petty crimes to finance their
elopement-leading to a situation not unlike the one that got the girl arrested
in the first place! In the original Gribouille, it was abundantly clear that
both father and son had a yen for their pretty guest, but this menage a trois
has been toned down in the Hollywood version, with Morestan remaining more or
less faithful to his long-suffering wife Michelle (Irene Rich, Filmaffinity).

Based on the French film Gribouille, a juror gives the woman acquitted a job and
a room while lying to his wife, and his son falls in love with her.

Andre Morestan (Brian Aherne) leaves his bicycle shop for jury duty. Brash Andre
is an alternate juror. Natalie Roguin (Rita Hayworth) is charged with murder,
and the victim got her an apartment. Andre replaces an ill juror. Natalie says
the victim Gilbert struck her, was drunk, and tried to kill her; she struggled
to get his gun. His father testifies that Gilbert took money from him for her.
Andre asks a pertinent question. At home Francois Morestan (Evelyn Keyes) asks
her father Andre if she can marry Robert LaCoste (Edward Norris). Another woman
calling herself Natalie Roguin testifies Gilbert threatened to kill her but was
not drunk. The jury cannot agree, and Andre argues she must be acquitted. When
he explains, they agree. Andre tells her lawyer he will help her.

Andre trades a tandem for two bikes, and his wife Michele Morestan (Irene Rich)
complains. Natalie calls Andre, and he goes to meet her. Natalie says she can't
get work. Andre offers her a job in his shop and a room; but he tells Michele
she is a friend's daughter. Andre's son Pierre Morestan (Glenn Ford) sees it is
Natalie. Francois says Pierre is in love. Pierre finds Natalie reading his
astronomy book. Michele hears Natalie talking Hungarian. Andre tries to keep
juror Lurette (Curt Bois) from seeing Natalie. Lurette tells Michele they made a
mistake on the case, and Andre tells Lurette not to come back. Robert wants to
teach Natalie how to dance. Andre is worried but reassures Natalie. Andre tells
Michele that she spoke a dialect, not Hungarian. At dinner they discuss the
murder case, and Natalie goes out, followed by Pierre, who tells her he knows
who she is and advises her to leave. Natalie defends Andre, and Pierre shows her
the moon and Venus.

In church Lurette sees Andre with Natalie, who leaves. Pierre tells Natalie she
will be his wife. Pierre tells Andre he is going to marry Natalie, but Andre
says no. Robert tells Natalie that Lurette informed him who she is. Robert tries
to kiss her, and jealous Pierre fights Robert until Andre stops them. Michele
learns about Natalie, and Francois cries. Pierre takes money; but Natalie says
good-bye and that she does not love him. Andre accuses Pierre of robbing him and
breaks a cupid on Natalie's head. Michele keeps Andre from telling a policeman.
Michele doesn't want Pierre to leave and says she'll go too. Andre tells Lurette
he was right, and Lurette tells him to go to the court. Andre does and learns
that evidence proved her innocent. Andre tells Lurette that Natalie will be his

This comedy-drama shows the power a beautiful woman has to motivate men to do
good and bad things. (Sanderson Beck)


It's a remake of the 1937 French film Gribouille ("Heart of Paris"). The stagy
droll family drama/comedy is directed by Charles Vidor ("Gilda"/"Cover
Girl"/"Ladies in Retirement"). It's the first teaming up of the charismatic
Glenn Ford and Rita Hayworth duo. Writer Lewis Meltzer bases it on the story by
Marcel Achard.

Andre Morestan (Brian Aherne) is the good-natured, middle-aged bourgeois
shopkeeper patriarch of a Parisian family. His stern wife Michele (Irene Rich)
looks upon him with disdain that he's so gleeful about going on jury duty and
not being in his bicycle shop. His naive daughter Francois (Evelyn Keyes) wants
his permission to marry pretentious dance instructor Robert LaCoste (Edward
Norris), while his son Pierre (Glenn Ford) would rather watch his dad on jury
duty than mind the store.

When a juror gets sick, alternate juror Andre replaces him on the trial of
Natalie Roguin (Rita Hayworth). She's a young woman of questionable repute
accused of murdering her lover who put her up in an apartment. The death, she
says, resulted when he was drunk and struck her; in the struggle to knock away
his gun, it accidently discharged. Most of the jury believes she's a liar and is
guilty, but the overbearing Andre convinces them there's doubt and they acquit
her. Andre feels sorry for her, and tells that to her lawyer (George Coulouris).
He then offers her a job in the shop and a room, and disguises her identity by
saying she's the daughter of an old friend. Pierre believes his father was
fooled by Nancy, but falls in love with her anyway. This leads to many domestic
complications that have to be straightened out, including Andre now feeling he
made a mistake about Nancy's innocence.

It serves as a showcase for Rita. But the film veers awkwardly from comedy to
drama, and seems vacuous as it's more about the beauty of Rita causing men to
make fools of themselves than anything else. (Dennis Schwartz)


The Lady in Question marked the first pairing of Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford.
It firmly established their onscreen relationship. In this movie, as well as in
Gilda and Affair in Trinidad, Hayworth plays a woman with a mystery about her
that drives Ford to distraction.

As the movie opens, bicycle shop owner, Andre gets called to jury duty and
eagerly races off to do his civic duty. His wife and, college aged, son and
daughter find his enthusiasm for jury duty amusing. Andre finds himself sitting
on a jury in which Hayworth is accused of killing a man, with whom she may or
may not have been a mistress to.

In a ridiculous way, Andre helps to get Hayworth acquitted. He then offers the
poor, innocent girl a job at his bicycle shop to help her out. He lies to his
family that she is the daughter of an old friend. Ford, however, knows who she
really is, but it's too late for him to tell mom as he has, of course, fallen in
love with her. Sure it is one of those love at first sight things, but hey, it
is Rita Hayworth.

Rita would go on to become the hottest sex symbol of the 1940's. It happened
after she started appearing in musicals where she was all dolled up in glamorous
clothes, dancing around showing some skin. In The Lady in Question, Hayworth
wears very conservative, I am too demure to be guilty, clothes. She walks around
acting very melancholy. She is a mere shadow of her future mass appeal as a
movie star.

Ford made a dozen unmemorable movies before serving as a Marine in World War II.
This movie being one of them. His first film after coming back to Hollywood was
opposite Hayworth in the classic Gilda. The first thing you notice about Ford,
if you can actually tear yourself away from Hayworth, is just how much older he
looks in Gilda than in The Lady in Question. Whereas Hayworth got sexier, Ford
just got older. In their first movie, Ford is a baby faced rube. In Gilda, he is
a mature man with some life experiences. Was it his acting, or did the war play
it's part? Either way, The Lady in Question is more of a foot note in the
pairing of Hayworth and Ford than it is an actual movie worth seeing. (Eric
