Broadway dance director George Randall (Dick Powell) is stuck with staging a Broadway show starring Peggy Revere (Joan Blondell), a wealthy but untalented performer who is starring only because she is backing the show. Tempers flare during rehearsals, but suave producer Fred Harris (Warren William) smooths things over by pretending to each combatant that each one secretly loves the other. Trouble is, Randall really has eyes for chorus girl Ruth Williams (Jeanne Madden). On opening night, the tempestuous Peggy storms out of the production, leaving Ruth to play the lead and carry the show. Can she pull it off?

Listen, I've got a terrific star, lyrics and music by Cooper and Marley, all the girls in the world!
All the girls in the world. I guess that's just too ducky. Listen, sweetheart, I wouldn't step on the stage with even one girl. For five years I've been working with these females in wholesale lots. Even at home, I've had women in my ears and in my teeth, my hair, screamin', hollerin', yellin'. Well, they're all alike and they're making a gibbering maniac out of me.
