Broadway dance director George Randall (Dick Powell) is stuck with staging a Broadway show starring Peggy Revere (Joan Blondell), a wealthy but untalented performer who is starring only because she is backing the show. Tempers flare during rehearsals, but suave producer Fred Harris (Warren William) smooths things over by pretending to each combatant that each one secretly loves the other. Trouble is, Randall really has eyes for chorus girl Ruth Williams (Jeanne Madden). On opening night, the tempestuous Peggy storms out of the production, leaving Ruth to play the lead and carry the show. Can she pull it off?

Did You Know?
Listen, Hayward, we're still set with dress rehearsal. You line up all the critics in town and bring them down to the theater and I'll turn it on for them - with a girl that's got a little talent, this show will get by! If the critics say it's in the bag, we'll open tonight anyway. What can we lose?
