She had no talent and no temperament”

so they could finally see my talent and
“The charming Blanche is

– To hell with the those nonsense news pieces
about the showgirls. I need to urgently find out

I can pay you back the debt.

Everybody was waiting for
the will to be opened.
“My entire estate, which consists of
Tripoli Kanal shares in the amount of
300.00.000 francs, I’m leaving
… to my niece – Maria Ivanova”
“Before my cousin escaped from
Moscow she married a Russian, and hid
Maria’s documents inside her doll”
“Maria’s distinctive marks – 17 years old, birthmark on a shoulder”
“She will be able to get her inheritance
on the day she gets married”

All the needles were there !
“Birth certificate form: Maria daughter
of peasant Peter Ivanov”
– You are my cousin !
You have inherited millions !
– I’m asking for your hand in marriage
– This needs to be discussed …
– We made a mistake. There are no
documents in this doll.
It’s the wrong Ivanova.

doesn’t go down, you will be getting …

“Improving the living conditions of the
proletarian student body : 500 000 roubles.

But you need to distract Paul for me.
– So, it’s decided:
The wedding is tomorrow !
– Book the wedding
tomorrow at 1 pm.

a wedding dress.
“Since comrade Ivanova had received a large
inheritance I have a full confidence that she will
be able to pay her utility and rent bills”

and P. Kuzinai at 1 pm”
“Paris. To notary Verger. Found her.
Getting married tomorrow. Pierre”
“Paris. To notary Verger. Found her.
Getting married tomorrow. Paul”
– Are you still looking for a model ?
– Your name ?
– Maria Ivanova
– And the doll ?
– I love you !..
We have to get married !!!
– To get the inheritance it’s also
necessary to register a civil union …
– Ok, let’s say I will get married !
– And the next day, I will get a divorce !
– The groom has arrived !
– Come around, I want you
to try some sweets !
– Eat them yourself !
– Am I interrupting ?
– It’s all right …
We are leaving soon
– You have killed our chance of happiness.
Who are you? Why did you take
Pierre from me ?
The next day
– It’s time to get married !
– Tripoli Kanal had collapsed …
The shares are worthless …
– Now we don’t need a fake marriage
– That’s right,
we don’t need a fake marriage !..
“Comrade Ivanova can take consolation
in the fact that while she will only a see
a smile from the fantastical millions,
she will however receive
a real university allowance”
