Alice Day stars as Phyllis of the Follies in this standard backstage yarn. As a favor to her old chorus pal Mrs. Dexter (Lilyan Tashman), Broadway dancer Phyllis Sherwood agrees to play a joke on a client of Mrs. Dexter's lawyer husband (Matt Moore). The client, a roving rogue named Clyde Thompson (Edmund Burns), has a habit of romancing married women and has already made up his mind to make Mrs. Dexter -- whom he's never met -- his next conquest. Phyllis poses as Mrs. D. to throw Clyde off the track, leading to an unending supply of humorous complications. Future radio actress Duane Thompson appears in a saucy supporting role.
