Lovers Brian McBride (Albert Ray) and Millicent Lloyd (Elinor Fair) seem made for each other -- he's a composer and she's a singer. But they are temporarily separated when a musical comes through town and snatches up Millicent on its way to New York. Brian writes an opera and also heads to the Big Apple. The musical Millicent has been performing in has failed, and its composer manages to steal Brian's score and use it in a rewrite. The only problem is that he forgot the finale. The impresario eventually looks to Brian to supply it, which he does, and the show is a success. As a result, Brian and Millicent are happily reunited. Parts of this film actually used the exteriors and offices of Tin Pan Alley in New York as backgrounds.
