FBO Pictures, the feisty little precursor to RKO Radio, managed to pull itself up to the big leagues with the help of such popular efforts as Queen O' Diamonds. The exotically beautiful Evelyn Brent stars as chorus girl Jerry Lynn, who happens to be a dead ringer for acclaimed dramatic actress Jeanette Durant (also played by Evelyn Brent). Jerry's sweetheart David Hammon (Theodore von Eltz) would like to achieve fame as a playwright, but no one will bankroll his works. Inevitably, Jerry, posing as Jeanette (who's been conveniently kidnapped by jewel thieves), convinces a big-time producer to stage David's newest play. No, it's not over yet; once she's solved David's professional problems, Jerry must rescue her sweetheart from a phony murder charge.
