In this tuneful comedy, an opera talent scout is in the country one day when he overhears a beautiful hillbilly milkmaid singing to her cow. The gal has an exquisite voice and he immediately snaps her up and takes her to the big city to become his newest star. Unfortunately, for all her musical gifts, the poor girl couldn't act her way out of a milk pail and so the wily agent has her sing off-stage while her double performs on stage. Things go okay for a time, but then the singer rebels, finding opera music tiresome and too snobby. One night she decides to sing her own version of Rossini's "William Tell" which she calls "Tillie Tell." The audience goes mad with delight and she becomes a great success.
