Polly (Pauline Garon) and Gert (Gertrude Short) are a pair of lingerie models, ever on the prowl for boyfriends. When the girls "steal" the sweethearts of vaudeville's Dotty Sisters (Lillian Hackett, Jean Van Vliet), the Dottys retaliate by getting our heroines fired. Polly and Gert then turn the tables by kidnapping the sisters, swiping their costumes and going on stage in their stead. The girls' performance is atrocious, but the audience is in stitches, and soon Polly and Gert are signed to a long-term contract as a comedy act! Ladies at Ease was undoubtedly inspired by the career of the Cherry Sisters, who from all accounts were the least-talented duo ever seen on any American stage.
