A couple of cities which sound an awful lot like Dallas and Fort Worth in real life take their rivalry quite seriously. Both are planning big expositions wanting to be chosen as the site of a planned World's Fair.
John Payne plays the organizer for the show of one of the cities and Mae Clarke is sent in to spy on him for the other. Of course the inevitable happens, need I go any farther.
The songs are provided by the team of Ben Oakland and Herbert Magdison and one of them, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star did enjoy some minor success during the time.
This was Payne's second feature film and first lead after being spotted in a minor role in Dodsworth. He'd have to wait for a few years before hitting the big time with 20th Century Fox.
Maybe this might have faired better at a major studio, but this was Grand National Pictures. As it is it's pleasant enough entertainment but nothing spectacular.
