One would never guess that the idea for this maudlin exercise sprang from the mind of the usually reliable Anita Loos. Shirley Mason plays Sally Simpson, a small-town girl who heads to Hollywood in hopes of becoming a movie star. Failing in this enterprise, Sally finds herself alone and broke in Tinseltown, while her mother back home suffers in her bed, in dire need of an operation. To raise the necessary medical funds, Sally very nearly compromises her virtue with oily Grant Payne (John Miljan). She is saved from this humiliation by her childhood sweetheart Johnny Nash (William Collier Jr.), who materializes out of nowhere to punch Payne senseless and provide the necessary funds with no strings attached.
