Famed Broadway actress Carlotta Lee has been in a string of flops which is not only hurting her professionally but in the pocketbook. Peter Lawrence is a powerful New York "man about town" gossip columnist and occasional radio host. Carlotta and Peter grew up together in "the 'hood" when they were just Charlie and Pete, they who were once engaged before they both earned their fame. Regardless of their history, Pete is not averse to giving Charlie unsolicited advice via the column all in an effort for her to do what he thinks is right for her. When he learns that an old childhood friend, Buckteeth O'Toole, has just died in a workplace accident leaving his two children, thirteen year old Mike and adolescent Jake, orphaned, Pete uses his platforms to try and find someone to adopt the pair instead of sending them to an orphanage where they would probably be eventually separated.

Wait a minute, just a week ago I gave you $300. What did you do with it?
You're right. Let me see.
Well, I spent $150 on a dame. I lose a hundred and thirty in a crap game. The other twenty? I suppose I just wasted it!

SO many big, fun names in this one. Ralph Morgan was a star in so many black & white films. Jessie Ralph had worked with W.C. Fields, and put him right in his place. a young Franchot Tone will also star in many films. Mickey Rooney in here as little street punk, right around the same time he started making all the Andy Hardy films. Carlotta Lee is the star here... she had made a few silents, then into the talkies. died quite young, at 54, under suspicious circumstances. Here, Lee is a broadway actress, who has had a few flops. her agent tells her to hold out for a really great part, so in the meantime, she adopts a couple street kids. or rather, her press agent decides it would be good publicity. it gets rawtha silly. i was never a mickey rooney fan. keep an eye out for virginia weidler.. she had a pretty big role in "the women", with norma shearer. Carlotta adopts "mike and jake", and tries to make a go of it, even if it did start as a publicity stunt. this one is just okay.
