Margaret Brooke (Elaine Hammerstein) has a lovely voice, and the choirmaster at her church suggests that she travel from her home in Dorchester, Massachusetts, to New York City to pursue a singing career. She does, and while she is taking opera lessons, she is dazzled by the usual temptations offered by the big city. Ultimately she decides that love and happiness lead to a better life than fame does, and she returns home to her sweetheart, who she had secretly married the year before. Greater Than Fame was based on a play by S. Jay Kaufman.
