Gloria, Barabara and Buddy are working at the sheet music counter in a New York department store. On a trip of the whole store, Gloria, who's in love with Buddy, is spotted by vaudeville hoofer Miller, whom his partner Mooney, like her predecessors, has just left. Miller tours with Gloria and both are spotted by Ziegfeld's talent scouts, just before they were splitting up, leaving Gloria with a contract giving Miller a part of her earnings in the next few years. Gloria becomes the star of a new Ziegfeld production, but Barbara, who has been pining for buddy for quite a while, seems to have more luck with him. Written by

Eddie Cantor, Helen Morgan and Rudy Vallee are listed early in the credits, and are NOT in the comprehensive cast list presented later. Because of this, the IMDb cast list uses all actor names in order of being printed in the credits. See more »
This film may be a bit creaky, but still it is very satisfying to watch. I DID NOT need the fast forward button. To see a filmed performance of a probably pared down Ziegfield Show was an enjoyable experience overall. The music and the dance scenes were excellently executed and are a treat. Many of the principals had very limited film exposure afterwards, especially Mary Eaton and Dan Healy The specialties by Cantor and Vallee were also good, But, it was a pure thrill to see Helen Morgan singing, "What Wouldn't I Do for That Man"!!
