Another backstage story and all the principals are familiar types of the theatre. This time the heroine (Faye) is not the prima donna, but a young dramatist of serious plays, who sells a script because of her good looks. Ameche is the successful Broadway librettist who persuades Winninger to make the investment. When her serious play is made the basis for a satiric musical, Faye returns to town to protest, and discovers herself the author of a hit.

The Ritz Bros sing and dance in their underwear; they disguise themselves as scrub women and do a routine in the YWCA; they do a good floor number with Louis Prima, and his band; and they give Hovick excellent support in some amusing blackouts.

Five numbers are contributed by Mack Gordon and Harry Revel.
