This standard but solid programmer was put out by a company called C.B.C., a Poverty Row studio derisively called "Corned Beef and Cabbage." Later in the decade, the company would change its name to Columbia, and, under the leadership of tough, plain-spoken mogul Harry Cohn, it would become a real force in the movie industry. When opera diva Julia Montfort (Irene Rich) marries Frank Travers (Albert Roscoe), she gives up her career and becomes a housewife. Travers loses his job. Julia saves them from the poorhouse by returning to the stage for impresario Sam Hermann (Willard Louis). To save her husband's dignity, she creates a job for him, but he's actually paid out of her salary. Because of an argument he overhears, Travers becomes suspicious of his wife's faithfulness. Eventually the truth comes out and the couple's relationship is saved.
