Gribiche 1926
The low-born 12-year-old Gribiche (Jean Forest) returns the hand-bag of rich American Edith Maranet (Francoise Rosay, wife of the director), who lost it while shopping in a department store, and she takes his address after he refuses a reward.
Mrs. Maranet is taken by the boy and decides to adopt him and give him a proper upbringing.  Soon Gribiche finds himself with tutors and butlers and other servants all keen to turn him into a proper gentleman.  He's put on a rigid schedule and taught how to dress and behave in polite company.  Yes he has better food, but is it all worth it?
