Conceived just to suit the talent of Lightner, which proved to be not as vast as the part called for. She plays a cabaret singer with a good friend in gangster Morris. The latter helps the singer find her way to success, receiving a number of bruises to get her there. But all along Morris

is in love with society dame Eilers, who has all the stylized charm Lightner lacks. The comedy and singing scored a hit, but the dramatics were far too sentimental. Songs include: "Darn Fool Woman Like Me," "Watching My Dreams Go By," and "Bouncing the Baby Around" (Al Dubin, Joe Burke, sung by

Winnie Lightner).
