Storyline

Sweedie, the theater's scrubwoman, in love with the unappreciative props, become enamored with the idea of a stage career. A poker game in which she is lucky enough to hold five aces furnishes her with the financial resources. At a booking office, she gets Slivers, a three-hundred-pound dancer, for a partner and they make the ham and egg circuit. On their tour they strike the theater in which Sweedie works as a mop artist. When their turn comes to go on, the jealous props, who has just awakened to Sweedie's possibilities, tries to "crab" the act. While Slivers and Sweedie are dancing the wings and other things fall on them. Sweedie suffers about three minutes for art and then she and Slivers decide to fight back. They advance on the home guards and, after a terrible struggle, get and keep possession of the stage. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
