The "lady" is country lass Janie Clark (Jinx Falkenberg) in this peppy Columbia musical. Upon inheriting several million dollars' worth of real estate, Janie heads to Manhattan, where she runs up against her snooty, avaricious relatives. One of Janie's assets is a nightclub, providing the heroine ample opportunity to exhibit her singing and dancing skills. The film is stolen by jumbo Joe Besser as Roly Q. Entwhistle, a would-be magician who unofficially adopts Janie and protects her against her enemies. Five songs are heard during the proceedings, none as entertaining as Besser's "You Craaazy You" antics.
