Compson was a silent film star, and one of her unknown talents at the time was her violin-playing ability, which she displays in this early talkie. A nice jazz quartet is making a meager living when two of them take Compson in from the street. She does all their domestic chores and becomes

their very astute business manager. And when she joins the boys for some songs, their fortunes really take off, going from $100 a week to $3,000. She even has an affair with one of the band members. The film has a realistic touch. The picture was remade twice by RKO as THAT GIRL FROM PARIS (1937)

and FOUR JACKS AND A JILL (1942).
