Rebellious daughter of a millionaire (Betty Balfour) decides to marry the penniless Jean Bradin against her father's will. She runs off to France and begins living a life of luxury on the profits from her father's business.

Her father puts an end to her lavish lifestyle telling her the business has gone bust and she must now work for a living.

When he finds out about her "job," he decides to end his facade but she'll only forgive him if he accepts her new husband.


Champagne was made in both an English and German version.

Hitch wasn't happy with the movie and told Truffaut, "The film had no story to tell."

Hitch's original script (about a girl who worked in a wine cellar) was rejected by Balfour; Brit's biggest female star.

Hitchcock refused to cast the usual extras for the crowd scenes and blew up at the replacements that were used.
