Successful songwriter falls for society girl who is just playing around. He doesn't realize that his girl-Friday is the one he really loves until it is almost too late. Although he is dazzled by high society, he overhears the society girl's admission of just fooling in time to avoid marriage. Played against a theatrical backdrop, there are lots of songs and production numbers. Written by
Absolutely Abysmal Early Talkie Musical that is One of those that is Totally Forgotten and for Good Reason. It is an Example of Hollywood Unmasked for what it can be at its Worse. Even in 1930 this must have been Awful. Considering Neither the Director nor the Stars did Anything Worth a Note After this Bomb.
There is a Fat Leading Lady Singing and Dancing as a Wondrous Stage Star and is the Blunt of Ugly and Weight Related Humor. There are Jewish Comedians and Songwriters that are Stereotypical Embarrassing.
One Staged Musical Extravaganza with Dozens of Shapely Girls in Rotation and Counter Rotation that Anticipates Busby Berkley is a Highlight, but Mostly the Movie is a Tough Watch because it is So Dated that it Cannot even be Seen as High Camp. It's just One Cringe Inducing Scene After Another.
This One has been Relegated to the Dust Bin and Once in a While TCM Brushes it Off for a Screening, but that Only Reinforces its Place in what can Only be Described as a Pathetic Picture.
