This is RKO's first sound musical. It centers on a pair of vaudevillians who are quite close on and off the stage until a dashing millionaire comes around and begins wooing the female partner. She too is smitten and begins to pick and needle her partner about his faults. Eventually she dumps him, but it is not too long before the two are reunited and continue to make beautiful music together. Songs include: "Jericho" (Leo Robin, Richard Myers), "Mine Alone" (Herman Ruby, Myers), "Do Something," and "I'll Always Be in Love with You" (Bud Green, Sammy Stept, Ruby).
