ZaSu Pitts and Guy Kibee are Kansans with money. We meet them as they've gotten off a ship in New York. Pitts wants publicity for their wealth. She wants a place in New York society, too.
Enter Edward Everett Horton. He has a plan to get them recognized. He will have a female acquaintance sponsor them -- for a price.
This is a comedy with few surprises, but I won't give any of them away.
Suffice it to say you haven't heard anything till you've heard Horton sing a love duet from "rigoletto" with Ross Alexander! Alexander plays the rich woman's freewheeling son.
The script is filled with gay double-entendres. These are both spoken (or sung!) and visual: At one point, Alexander is lifted in the air and appears in a very position position -- legs in the air. (Watch it and see for yourself.) The great Judy Canova is in it too. And can you believe it? She doesn't sing a note!
