'Prix de Beauté' is Louise Brook's last starring role in a feature, and her only film made in France. It tells the deceptively simple story of Lucienne, a high spirited Parisian typist who leads a mundane life with her fiancé, André, and a number of friends. While André indeed loves Lucienne, he has conventional expectations for their life together. When the Miss Europa beauty contest comes to town, he warns her to 'not even dream' of entering it. Lucienne ignores his advice, and from there, Prix de Beauté follows Brook's character as she struggles for independence and happiness. André is overcome with jealous rage... leading to an unexpected and dramatic resolution.
