A largely silent musical, My Man is primarily a showcase for the enormously popular Ziegfeld Follies star Fanny Brice who plays the owner of a costume shop who tries to deal with her free-spirited troublesome sister while simultaneously trying to hang onto her relationship with a homeless physical culture demonstrator. Brice and he decide to marry and as they prepare for their wedding, her sister gets jealous and tries to seduce him. Though the story isn't much, Brice does perform some of her most famous sketches and even sings a couple songs.
