Directed by Aline Turner.
Ring Round the Moon is a whimsical jaunt of love and matchmaking.
Set in the winter garden of an estate during a ball, the poor but lovely dancer Isabelle has arrived at the invitation of Hugo, a charming scoundrel and twin brother to Frederic, a young man hopelessly in love. However, Hugo believes that Frederic loves the wrong woman–the manipulative millionairess Diana–and wants to use Isabelle to break up the engagement. At the same time, Isabelle must hide her identity (and melodramatic mother) to play the part of a wealthy socialite. Lady India, Hugo’s eccentric cousin, is the mistress of Diana’s father Messerschmann, but carrying on a secret romance with Messerschmann’s secretary, Patrice. Madame Desmortes, the hostess, has just about had it with everyone’s secrets.
