A young Kansas girl who comes to New York to make it big in the chorus becomes involved in a love triangle and learns a lesson about show business in this "high class" film from the ribald 1930s. Loretta Young stars as Marion, a gifted songwriter who longs to hit the big time. When she falls in love with Jimmy (David Manners), she follows him to New York and luckily finds a job writing songs for Humphries, a tyrannical producer (Louis Calhern). But Jimmy is engaged to another woman (Helen Vinson) and Humphries has no intention of helping her with her career. She soon finds solace with Tony Travers (George Brent), a doctor whose ordinary life she welcomes with open arms.
