Joan (Frances Langford), a girl from Kansas, wants to make it big on Broadway - but like so many other girls at the boarding house she's staying at, she might have talent but always fails to get a break. Once she has run out of money, Joan plans to go back to Kansas to marry her fiancé Jim (Craig Woods), but when the other girls at the boarding house hear her sing at her farewell party, they decide to invest in her career, not only because they like her but because they do believe she will be a star one day. Jim doesn't approve of Joan's decision, so much so that he asks one of her friends, Steve (Edward Norris), to look after her, not realizing that Steve and Joan are actually in love with each other.

In the months to come, Joan's career doesn't take off, so much so that the girls who have invested in her think about dropping their business plan (and Joan with it) ... when suddenly they get their hands on an unproduced musical that would be ideal for Joan, and they even get two shoestring producers (Charles Judels, Charles Williams) to produce it. When Jim learns about this though, he buys the producers out and plans to shut the show down - but when a girl (Ariel Heath) dies in an accident after not getting a part in the show but wishes Joan good luck for the whole thing nevertheless with her last breath, Jim reconsiders, puts on the show and even gives up on ever marrying her, pretty much presenting her to Steve on a gold platter.


Rather boring melodrama that pretty much lacks any and all interesting plottwists, and most of the songs in it are too plain to really make up for the lack of action. Also, a few outside shots - at least stock footage - would have greatly improved the movie, as this is one film about Broadway in which you never even see Broadway.
