Storyline

Emily Klauber is a singer in the same Music Appreciation class as Maynard and Dobie. Maynard believes so much in Emily's talent that he vows to help her in any way he can, they both coming to the conclusion that all of Maynard's plans involve money which they don't have. Maynard does devise a way to raise money, which leads to the next step of learning everything he needs truly to handle Emily's career as her manager. Despite his devotion to her career, can Maynard take Emily, who ends up using the stage name Kitty Fontaine, only so far before she outgrows his usefulness? Written by Huggo
