Johnny Mack Brown stars as a college football star who's expelled after a night club brawl. The fight is over St. Louis Lou (Jeanette Loff) aka "The Missouri Nightingale," the woman who owns the club and is involved with a gambler. After his expulsion, Brown wanders around looking for a job. One night in a soup line he runs across Loff again.
She feels sorry for Brown and maybe even falls for him but she can't escape the gambler. She helps get him hired on a professional football team, but the gambler rigs it with the manager to make Brown look bad. Will Brown succeed as a pro player? Will Loff escape the gambler? Will love win out? Ultra-low budget film races along, but the stars are decent despite the overall cheapness. Supporting cast is mostly unknowns but Earle Foxe is suitably smarmy as the gambler and Roberta Gale plays an old girlfriend. The song "Leave Me Alone" is sung by Loff and isn't bad.
Loff was pretty and had a decent singing voice but never really caught on in films. She's probably best remembered for KING OF JAZZ.
