A singer marries a famous composer, and after a while she gets the itch to go back on the stage. However, her husband won't let her. When she hears that a popular French singer named "Raquel" is coming to New York, she decides to go to Raquel with a plan--unbeknownst to her husband, "Raquel" is actually her sister, and her plan is for them to switch places so she can fulfill her dream of going back on the stage. However, things don't go quite as planned. Written by
Constance Bennett wants to go back on stage after leaving it to marry, but husband Franchot Tone won't let her, so she switched place with the other half of her vaudeville sister act, who was a success in Paris as Mlle. Raquel, but would rather make whoopee in Atlantic City than rehearse in New York.
Competently done, though Constance Bennett's singing sounded better with her 'French' accent (perhaps the sound in the first reel got distorted). There is a grand finale of about 15 minutes that has most of the singing and dancing, which is typical for movies for the time. Some of the gags are good and some of the women's costumes are great.
