After a number of young women disappear, the Paris police hire the latest victim's roommate, Dea, to go under cover and investigate the newspaper ads asking for young, single girls (all the missing women had answered such ads). Dea arranges interviews with numerous men seeking female

employees. After meeting with everyone from hotel managers to butlers, all of whom prove innocent, she meets Chevalier, a nightclub entertainer seeking a new maid. Dea falls in love with the charming singer and the two make plans to marry. Just before the wedding, however, Chevalier is arrested

and charged with the murders of the missing women. Though he claims he is innocent, the evidence looks increasingly grim and he is sentenced to die. Dea, however, is sure he has been framed and manages to ensnare the real murderer. As one of the last films produced in France before WW II, PERSONAL

COLUMN had to be smuggled out of its home country and into America. Unfortunately, the American censors made up for what the Nazis missed, and censored several scenes that detailed some of the more sensational aspects of the murder victims' sex lives. In 1947 PERSONAL COLUMN was remade as

LURED.
