When the husband learns that his suspicions are accurate, he tells Claude of his plan to kill Flannagan. Claude's daughter Ariane overhears the threat and warns Frank of the coming trouble. She then plays the part of a worldly socialite with a list of conquests as long as Flannagan's. The bemused ladies' man returns to America the next day and Ariane, completely in love, follows his romantic escapades in the news. She sees him again in Paris the following year, and resumes her worldly guise, telling tales of former lovers when they meet at his hotel in the afternoon.

This odd combination of story, characters, and cast could easily have
fallen apart irretrievably in the first few minutes. That it holds
together is due primarily to Audrey Hepburn's unsurpassed charm and
Billy Wilder's resourceful story-telling technique. It ends up being
enjoyable most of the time, sometimes very much so, in spite of itself.
The story is rather strange - for it to "work" you have to buy into a
number of unlikely possibilities, and even then, you have to accept the
main characters as sympathetic even when they don't deserve it. It's
the kind of hollow concept that you see much more often in present-day
movies, which are made for audiences who don't care about plausibility,
and who are easily persuaded that a shallow, pseudo-romantic attraction
between two characters automatically makes them sympathetic.
None of that is to imply anything against the stars. Audrey Hepburn is
so engaging as Ariane that it makes you want her to be happy, even
though much of her behavior is fatuous. Maurice Chevalier is enjoyable
and is obviously well-cast, and John McGiver also adds some good
moments. Gary Cooper's character doesn't work very well, but that
should not be blamed at all on Cooper. The character just is not as
appealing as the scriptwriters presume him to be, and Cooper should
actually be commended for making him as likable (or as un-unlikable) as
Wilder's skill made some strange stories work pretty well in his time,
and he also deserves much of the credit for keeping this one afloat.
There are also some very good sequences in the screenplay, for all that
it was uneven in general. The odd thing about "Love in the Afternoon"
is that if you can tolerate the poor setup and get past the obvious
flaws, you can really enjoy most of the movie, because it does have
several positive things to offer.
