~Plot Synopsis~
Sylvia Joy (Shirley Mason) is a cabaret dancer who turns down theatrical producer John Benton
(Richard Tucker) in favor of up-and-coming young actor John Warding (Bryant Washburn). Benton
wants to split the couple apart and manipulates events so that Warding is fired from the show in
which he is performing and blacklisted. Sylvia, meanwhile, becomes a musical comedy star and
Warding can't bear to be supported by her, so he leaves. While living in a cheap boarding house, he is
befriended by Nan Hartley, a chorus girl (Shannon Day). Benton offers this up as proof to Sylvia that
he is unfaithful, and Warding himself is about to tell her that since he is a failure, they should divorce.
But a taxi runs him over, and Nan brings Sylvia to him. The couple reconciles and once again Benton
is out of luck.
