SYNOPSIS

Chorus girl Patricia O'Brian is engaged to detective Danny Mallory, whose ambition is to own a farm and leave Broadway life. Although Pat tries to keep her younger sister Nora away, the star-struck girl attracts the philandering theatrical backer, Dicky Crawford, and secures a part in the show. When Nora falls in love with Crawford, Pat flirts with him to lure him away. During a dress rehearsal, Pat is chosen to take over for the ill star, but she reads a note from Nora announcing that she is going to Crawford's flat, and hurries from the theater half-dressed. At the apartment, Crawford expresses his preference for Pat. Meanwhile, Danny, employed by Crawford's wife to gather evidence for divorce, arrives to find Pat embracing Crawford. After Danny sees that Pat is wearing only her underwear under her coat, he will not listen to her protestations. Crawford fires Pat, but later, when she is about to be evicted, Nora telephones Danny to explain. Danny and Pat marry and move to the country, along with Nora and her new beau, a young assistant stage manager who loves ... +
