In Paris in the 1890s, Henri Danglard (Jean Gabin) owns a night club where the star turn is a belly dance by his mistress Lola (María Félix). Going after the show one night to an old-fashioned dance hall in Montmartre, he sees people doing the cancan together and is struck by the suppleness and charm of a young laundry girl called Nini (Françoise Arnoul). He persuades her to take dancing lessons for a new venture he is planning. As his club has failed and Lola has left him, his idea is to open another place with a troupe of glamorous girls performing the cancan. Naming it the Moulin Rouge, its opening night is a thunderous success!
