That charming supporting player, Fifi D'Orsay, got a rare starring role in this obscure show business melodrama produced by I.E. Chadwick for release by Monogram. The perky actress played -- of all things -- a Canadian rodeo rider. Persuaded by an ambitious press agent (Paul Kelly), she enters the Miss America pageant in Atlantic City and -- to no one's great surprise -- wins. Promising to make the girl a star, Broadway producer Robert Warwick gets rid of Kelly in order to have her to himself. He assures the press agent that it is all on the up and up and that he intends to marry the pretty Canadienne. Kelly returns in time to save the girl from the clutches of one of Broadway's biggest and baddest wolves only to receive a severe beating for his efforts. Bravely, Fifi goes on with the night's show (gaily singing "Comment ├ža va" by Albert Hay Malotte), but rushes to Kelly's bedside as soon as possible. The vivacious D'Orsay appeared in scores of films, but only for a moment or two and often wearing a maid's uniform.
