Gorgeous Broadway star Marvis Marberry (Dorothy Dalton) yearns to be taken seriously as an actress. Marvis sets her sights on a new play, based on a novel by Everett Hale (Charles Gunn). But Hale wants nothing to do with Marvis; besides, he's convinced that she could never convincingly portray a wisecracking, gum-chewing café girl. To prove him wrong, Marvis assumes the identity of "Chicken Casey", just the sort of girl depicted in Hale's novel. It's an old story, with a thoroughly predictable ending, but Dorothy Dalton was irresistable in both her on-screen guises. Chicken Casey was based on Doorsteps, a play by Christine Silver.
