In Calgary, press agent Larry (Paul Kelly) finds Fifi (Fifi D'Orsay) and decides to make her a star on Broadway - plus he has of course fallen in love with her, and she with him.

In New York, Fifi soon gets the attention of big-shot and financier Bill Webster (Robert Warwick), who soon enough gives her a lead in a Broadway revue by Earl Darell (Edwin Maxwell) ... but not only because he has also fallen in love with her. Larry in the meantime finds it harder and harder to share Fifi, who soon becomes the talk of town, with other men, and then he is even offered money by Darell, in the name of Webster, if he leaves town and never sees Fifi again.

He leaves town alright, but get a divorce from his wife with whom he has split up with years ago, but Fifi thinks he has let himself been bought out, and is so disappointed (and heartbroken) that she moves in with Webster.

Eventually, Larry comes back, and is first mad at her, but after she has made him understand, he has an argument with Webster that ends in a fistfight, with Larry winning ... after which Webster phones his boys to rough Larry up a bit - in fact more than a bit, so much that he is hospitalized. Fifi, after learning what had happened, gives a final performance under Webster's wing, then races to the hospital where she and Larry confess their love to each other.

 

Underbudgeted musical, that is just not really good on all accounts: The story is as clichéd as it is dull, the direction is boring, and Fifi D'Orsay neither looks like a girl everybody would fall for not does she show sufficient charisma (she is of course not at all helped by indifferent, static camerawork) to make up for her average looks, and her singing is not all that good either, while her exaggerated French accent soon gets annoying and doesn't at all sound sexy.
