John Boles is an opera singer, but he can't get a job. He has a son, Billy Lee, an ex-wife, Mona Barrie, who isn't interested in the boy, so Boles takes a job playing an Indian on a radio western show. Billy is thrilled, but agent Roscoe Karns is not. He gets Boles a job in touring company, but Boles prefers to stay with his son and a regular paycheck.
The script is a little simplistic; people are either very good and nurturing, or they are horrid people. Nonetheless the cast, including Selmer Jackson as Miss Barrie's current husband, is a very good one, and Boles gets to sing some standards and an aria.
