After her impressive dramatic role in So Big, Colleen Moore returned to light comedies (mostly because her studio knew they would bring in more money). Moore played the title role, made famous on Broadway by Marilyn Miller; Leon Errol reprises his stage role as the deposed Duke of Checkergovinia, who has been reduced to working as a waiter in America. That's where he meets Sally, an orphan girl who is working as a dishwasher. Sally has her sights on a better life -- she learned how to dance while living with Mr. DuFey, a dance teacher (Louise Beaudet), and she knows she has potential. With the help of Blaire Farquar, one of the restaurant patrons (Lloyd Hughes), she finally gets a break. An agent takes her on, and has her pose as a famous Russian dancer. While performing at a reception held by Mrs. Ten Broeck (Myrtle Stedman), she runs into Farquar, who falls in love with her. Sally, however, turns him down, since he did not love her when she was a dishwasher. After she becomes a star, he convinces her to reconsider.
