In this comedy, actor Hugh Herbert plays six different roles. Only one of the roles is a man. The story centers around a dizzy music lover, who has grown rich through real estate deals. Also figuring in the story are a cab driver/performer, and a down-on-her-luck, aspiring singer. They meet when she hails his cab as she skips out on her former boarding house because she cannot pay rent. The cabbie takes her to his boarding house. All of the residents are struggling performers. Unfortunately, they are all about to be evicted as none of them can pay rent. All of the tenants put together a show to try to earn money. They then turn the house into a nightclub. It is just about to fold when the real estate tycoon arrives and is impressed. He then remembers that he owns the building. The kind tycoon gives the place to the cabbie and the singer.
