In this college-campus musical, a Broadway star finds herself the proud owner of a North Carolina college. The star's boy friend attends the school where he is a big football hero. The trouble begins when the star begins trying to convince the young man to forget about school and elope with her and he refuses because he would let down his team. The determined young woman begins trying to force him to give up football, but she fails.
