In this early talkie, a burlesque team grows tired of playing rural gigs. When the fellow is offered a chance to do a solo act in the big-city Frolics, he accepts leaving his partner to keep working in hicksville. Meanwhile, back in the Big Apple, the fellow begins falling for a voluptuous vamp spurring him to write his old partner a letter and tell her of his plans to stay solo for a while longer yet. When he discovers that the sexpot is not interested in him, he frantically tries to get the letter back before she gets it. Unfortunately, he is too late. With an aching heart, the woman carries on with her show. Unbeknownst to her, the other partner has arrived and is in a theater box. When she breaks into one of their old duets, he joins her and a romantic reunion ensues.
