Dancer Jeannie James is a headliner at a New York club. Her brother sells insurance and wants help meeting Al Potts, a radio comic in line for a million dollar policy. Jeanne volunteers to make the sale, arranging to meet Al at his favorite watering hole. At the same time that she goes to work on sales, she falls for one of Al's friends while her pal Mabel sets her eyes on Al's radio-show partner, Jack Saunders. Business and pleasure mix well, and, as the plot moves, Jeanne, Al, and Jack get in several song and dance numbers. Written by
Vitaphone short has an insurance salesman begging his sister to introduce him to a radio star so that he can sell her a policy. Roy Mack directed this film without much fire but I can't say this was his style since this was the first film I've seen from him and he did make over a hundred in his career. What we got is basically another attempted comedy that mixes several musical segments but the comedy isn't funny and the songs aren't memorable. The film takes a while to warm up but not once would I say it's entertaining. Mitzi Mayfair, apparently a major Broadway star who couldn't make it in Hollywood, gets top billing but doesn't add anything to the film.
