FULL SYNOPSIS

powered by AFI

When Jimmy Doyle's Broadway musical is a flop, he takes his rejected star, Dixie Dugan, to a nightclub where she does her number again. Buelow, a Hollywood film director, sees her and persuades her to come to filmland for a part in his new picture. In Hollywood, Dixie meets Donna Harris, a down-and-out actress who is trying to put up a front; and Otis, the producer, is tired of Buelow and fires him. He discovers that Jimmy is the author of the show he is producing and hires him; but when Dixie gets the leading role, she becomes temperamental and conceited, demanding a new director and changes in the story. After Otis fires her and cancels the picture, Donna, also having lost her job, attempts suicide but is saved by Dixie and Jimmy. The film is finished and is a big success, ensuring happiness for all.
