Bing Crosby stars as himself in this Mack Sennett-directed two reeler. The film opens with Crosby singing the title song in front of a packed crowd at the Café Royale. At the same time, Ethel Dobbs (Alice Adair) listens to Crosby on the radio as she travels by train with her mother and he fiancé, the Marquis. Ethel has never seen Crosby, but she adores his singing and wishes her pompous fiancé were more like him. By coincidence, Crosby and his friend Jerry show up at the station as her train pulls in, as Crosby has gone to meet his sister. Seeing Ethel from behind, he gives her a hug, thinking she is his sister; when he discovers his mistake, he finds himself quite taken with the lovely girl. She, however, mistakes him for a masher, as does the furious fiancé. Many complications ensue as Crosby chases the girl, at the same time getting into trouble when he again mistakes another woman for Ethel. Eventually, all ends up happily with Crosby and Ethel together.
