Story [based on a story by Philip Wylie, adapted by Jacques Thery] is a light framework on which to hang the various numbers and specialties. Betty Grable and John Payne, co-stars in a Broadway musical, are romantically inclined - but he has a weakness for pretty girls, which keeps them continually battling. When the show closes, Grable joins her former dancing partner Romero for a western tour, but Payne follows to Lake Louise to woo her back to a new Broadway show.

Script is studded with laugh lines which are well distributed among the cast. Picture sags considerably towards the end, when story has to devote extended amount of footage to the romantic interludes without interruption of any song or dance specialties. But this is minor in the overall content of entertainment provided.
