When Broadway producer Robert Gordon (Robert Taylor) struggles to finance his new show, a wealthy widow, Lillian Brent (June Knight), offers him an idea: cast her and she will fund the project. Catching wind of the deal, columnist Bert Keeler (Jack Benny) blasts Gordon for practicing favoritism, which means when Gordon's former sweetheart, talented performer Irene Foster (Eleanor Powell), auditions for a part, Gordon refuses to cast her. Foster will need to scheme to win the role she deserves.
