This low-budget musical offers a peek behind the scenes in Hollywood. It centers on a recently unemployed talent scout who begins looking for a real talent to help him reestablish his career. He finds a talented actress and manages to convince his old boss to give her a screen test. Unfortunately, she is just awful; still the scout manages to get her on the studio payroll. Later she does indeed become a major star, and promptly falls in love with her leading man. This leads to big trouble. Fortunately, the talent scout saves her, and romance ensues. Songs include: "In the Silent Picture Days," "I Am the Singer, You Are My Song," "Born to Love," and "I Was Wrong" (M.K. Jerome, Jack Scholl).
