Tucker stars in her first feature as a nightclub singer who sacrifices everything to send her young daughter abroad to be educated. When the grown daughter (Lee) returns from Europe, she is shocked to discover that her mother is nothing more than a nightclub entertainer singing for drunks (a

secret that had been kept from her since childhood), and disowns her. Tucker spends the rest of the film playing the rejected but loving mother while crooning sad songs. The songs (written by Jack Yellen and Milton Ager) include: "I'm The Last Of The Red Hot Mommas," "I'm Doin' What I'm Doin' For

Love," "He's A Good Man To Have Around," "I'm Feathering A Nest (For A Little Bluebird)," and "I Don't Want to Get Thin." "Some Of These Days," Tucker's theme song, was by Shelton Brooks.
