- Synopsis / Plot
- Year 1900. After partners George Pratt and Sam McCord strike it rich with their Nome, Alaska gold mine, George's only wish is to marry his French fiancée Jenny, who has been patiently waiting for him for three years in Seattle. While George stays behind to build a honeymoon cabin and guard against claim jumpers with his rambunctious younger brother Billy, Sam, a womanizing, confirmed bachelor, sails to Seattle to purchase some needed machinery and to collect Jenny for George. Before sailing, Sam is approached by conman Frankie Canon, who asks for a loan, offering his "priceless" diamond pinky ring as collateral. When the diamond is smashed to smithereens by an errant whiskey bottle, Sam realizes he has been swindled and slugs Frankie. In Seattle, Sam discovers that Jenny has married a lowly butler, and when Jenny hears that the man she jilted is now a millionaire, she faints. Reluctant to break the bad news to George, Sam goes to drown his sorrows at a dance hall called the Henhouse. There he meets Michelle Bonet, known as "Angel," (Capucine) an attractive French hostess, and hits upon the idea of offering her to George as a substitute for Jenny.
