Chorus girl Gloria Carroll inherits one million dollars from Broadway playboy Herbert Dinwiddle.

Pinkie's lawyer suggests he get power-of-attorney over Gloria's funds. Henrietta wants to contest the will, hires a local young law school graduate, Jimmy Abercrombie and the trio set off for New York. Jimmy obtains an injunction against Pinkie that also serves to shut off McLane's credit for "Lucky Legs." To open the show and provide employment for her roommates, "Calamity" Jane Edwards and Jewel Perkins, Gloria offers to settle for $25,000 with Henrietta, who refuses. Annebelle, who likes Gloria, ...
