If Dee loves Billy and vice-versa, why do they keep arguing and breaking up?!
Let's cut to the chase. Dee loves Billy and vice-versa but it takes them the entire film to not only figure this out but act upon it!
Chorus girl Dee is in love with Billy, who is producing the Broadway show. He wants to make her a star BUT some evil gamblers want to ruin Billy and offer to make Dee a star in their show. So, they deliberately try to drive a wedge between the two sweethearts and it takes the two a long time to get their heads straight and do what's best. It all culminates with someone getting shot as well as the audience having to watch some dated musical numbers.
This is a time-passer--not a bad film at all but one that is easy to skip as well. Because it's an early talkie, the sound is a bit rough but otherwise it holds up pretty well today and Alice White is adorable in the lead, though Charles Dulaney (as Billy) is hardly the Hollywood type and it makes you realize how times have changed.
