Small-town flapper Crain marries bandleader Dailey and their honeymoon is comprised of a series of one-night stands, musically speaking. Tiring of constant travel, Crain goes home. His bookings ruined by the onset of the Great Depression, Dailey joins her there, along with his cynical,

world-weary manager, Levant. Having difficulty with the hicks, Dailey takes off alone, determined to conquer the big city. When he lands permanent employment with a hotel band, wife Crain joins him for a happy finish; the urbane Levant elects to continue rusticating. Pert Crain is charismatic,

Dailey sings and dances well, and Levant gives his usual delightful characterization. The picture is a much-altered remake of the studio's ORCHESTRA WIVES (1941). Dailey's alto sax solos were dubbed by Russ Cheever. Songs and musical numbers include "Crazy Rhythm" (Irving Caesar, Roger Wolfe Kahn,

Joseph Meyer), "You Were Meant for Me" (Arthur Freed, Nacio Herb Brown), "Goodnight Sweetheart" (James Campbell, Reginald Connolly, Ray Noble), "If I Had You" (Campbell, Connolly, Ted Shapiro), "Ain't She Sweet" (Jack Yellen, Milton Ager), "Ain't Misbehavin"' (Andy Razaf, Fats Waller), "I'll Get

By" (Roy Turk, Fred Ahlert), Concerto in F (George Gershwin, played by Levant), "Sweet Georgia Brown" (Ben Bernie, Maceo Pinkard, Kenneth Casey), and "What Can I Say After I Say I'm Sorry" (Walter Donaldson, Abe Lyman), the last two done by Eddie Miller on the soundtrack.
