In History is Made at Night (1937) Boyer plays a debonair Paris restaurant maitre d' who comes to Jean Arthur's assistance. He rescues her from a particularly nasty little scene set up by her psychotically possessive husband (Colin Clive, of "Frankenstein" fame -- the doctor, not the monster).
Clive's a monster in this one though, and Jean would like nothing better than to get far, far away from him. Instead, he forces her to accompany him to New York via a cruise ship, using her new-found love for Boyer as a form of blackmail. The suave (and lonesome) Boyer refuses to lose her, and follows her to New York.
