In this reworking of "No, No, Nanette," wealthy heiress Nanette Carter bets her uncle $25,000 that she can say "no" to everything for 48 hours. If she wins, she can invest the money in a Broadway show featuring songs written by her beau, and of course, in which she will star. Trouble is, she doesn't realize her uncle's been wiped out by the Stock Market crash.

The writing credit card originally read: Screen Play by Harry Clork, and the smudged out credit read: Suggested by the play "No, No, Nanette," by Frank Mandel, Otto Harbach, Vincent Youmans and Emil Nyitray.
Notably missing is the name of lyricist Irving Caesar, who was a co-lyricist of the original Broadway score of "No, No, Nanette." Yet receiving credit are Frank Mandel and Emil Nyitray, who actually wrote the play "My Lady Friends," on which the libretto of "Nanette" was based.
Apparently, there was a subsequent dispute involving these credits, the details of which remain obscure, but as part of the settlement of the matter, Warners agreed to blur the source credits on all future prints of the film (which now includes video, DVD, Blu-ray and cable TV versions). See more
