Chorus girl Sally O'Neil (Teena Johnson) may be "hard-boiled," but she's no golddigger. Thus, when the father of her wealthy sweetheart Kyle Stannard (Donald Reed) tries to buy her off, Sally refuses the money. She sticks by Kyle even after he is disinherited and forced to go to work (oh, the indignity!) The financial strain on the young couple's marriage eventually takes its toll, and before long they separate, with Sally returning to the chorus line to square her husband's debts. At this point, Kyle's dad realizes that Sally is true-blue and does what he can to bring the young husband and wife back together again.
