Fred Stevens, on his way to New York City with hopes of succeeding as a songwriter, meets and falls in love with Edna Baker, an employee in a dentist's office. In New York, Fred meets Paul Sears, a broken-down songwriter, his wife Lucille and her gold-digging sister, Eileen Fletcher. They are indifferent to him until they discover he has his life's savings with him. Eileen makes plans to marry Fred and ignores her song-publishing boy friend, Joe Hart. Fred and Paul write a song together and take it to Hart, who sees a way to get Eileen off his hands by giving Fred a large advance. Fred, who is completely swayed by Eileen, parts with Edna. Hart continues the advances but when Fred and Paul go to him asking why the song hasn't been published, Hart tells them it isn't any good and he was using Fred to help rid him of Eileen. Fred now realizes he loves Edna. A popular radio singer sees Fred's song in Hart's office and sings it on the air, and it becomes a hit.Written by
