Coburn plays a card shark, recently released from jail, with a devoted niece in nightclub singer Simms. The two move to Chicago to have a clean go of it. Simms gets a job at a club run by mobster Curtis, while Coburn decides to go behind his niece's back and make a killing at the tables.

Investigating attorney Paige is soon involved in a romance with Simms, though his main job is to put her boss behind bars because of illegal gambling activities. Frisco handles a bit of comedy as a bum who gives advice on love. Songs include: "In Love with Love," "Mam'selle Is on Her Way" (George

Waggner, Milton Rosen), "Tango" (Edgar Fairchild), and "Cuddle Up a Little Closer" (Karl Hoschna, Otto Harbach).
