In September 1928, Warner Bros. Pictures purchased a majority interest in First National Pictures and from that point on, all "First National" productions were actually made under Warner Bros. control, even though the two companies continued to retain separate identities until the mid-1930's, after which time "A Warner Bros.-First National Picture" was often used.

Terrific little musical that stars Alice White as a chorus girl who gets the big break and becomes a Broadway star. Not much on plot but White is a dynamo with three big song and dance numbers (and she's really good): "Jig Jig Jigaloo," "Wishing and Waiting for Love," and "Broadway Babies." The songs are snappy and memorable. There's also a big finale. There's a terrific scene of the guys playing cards in a hotel room and looking our across the alley into the rehearsal hall where White and company are dancing.
Sally Eilers and Marion Byron are the girl friends. Charles Delaney is the boy friend. Fred Kohler is the big shot. Tom Dugan is the stuttering sidekick. Bodil Rosing, Jocelyn Lee, and Aggie Herring co-star.
White was a major star during the early talkie period, and it's easy to see why from this film and Show Girl in Hollywood. She was wide-eyed and bright. She wasn't a great actress or singer but she's got a snappy personality, and she carried the flapper into talkies.
