~Plot Synopsis~
Fannie (Lois Wilson), an ambitious music hall performer, becomes a success with the help of Johnny
Fay (Sam Hardy), master of ceremonies and an inveterate gambler; he marries her, and 3 years later
they have a child. In New York they are engaged at a nightclub where Fannie is seen by Bronson
(Philip Strange) and Baron (Louis John Bartels), musical comedy producers. They offer Fannie a job
if she will agree to leave Johnny, but she refuses. Fannie and Johnny are fired when a reformer
discovers their child, and Johnny loses their last penny gambling. In desperation, Fannie accepts
Bronson's offer, while Johnny gets along singing in a honky-tonk. Fannie decides to divorce him but
changes her mind when she hears Johnny singing on the radio. Fannie is a flop until Johnny is
engaged to stage the show, for which he has actually written the music, and they are then
reconciled.
