Chorus girl Barbara Page (Viola Dana) gives up the footlights when she becomes the wife of bank clerk Dick Cobb (Tom Gallery). Content to be a housewife, Barbara is unable to convince her party-animal husband of the joys of domesticity. To support his hedonistic lifestyle, Dick embezzles money from his bank, only to be exposed by fellow clerk Warren Townsend (Nigel Barrie), who's got the hots for Barbara. While Dick goes on the lam, Warren shows up at Barbara's doorstep, offering to be of "help." Before she can fall into the false friend's clutches, however, Barbara is rescued by her ex-beau, theatrical producer Lyn Holmes (Alan Brooks). With Holmes' support, Barbara lands a choice part in a Broadway show and becomes an overnight success. When the chastened Dick comes back into Barbara's life, Holmes gallantly stage-manages the couple's reconciliation -- even though he, too, is madly in love with the girl.
