In this melodrama, set backstage at the theater, a fading, but still egotistical Hungarian star and his actress wife who has quietly endured his constant domination for years, move from Budapest to New York where they lead an impoverished life until their luck changes and they are given the leads in a famed young playwright's newest play. The old actor becomes an immediate hit. When he later learns that his wife has a crush on the playwright he is upset. The playwright doesn't mind though and quickly writes another play designed especially for her. It is a major hit, but the actress leaves the show in order to save her marriage.
