Ex-child star Tiny Barlow (Jackie Cooper) suggests that the studio remake "Skippy", the film that made him famous, with himself as coach for little Billy. A. J.

Tiny poses as a big shot and takes credit for getting Joan the role. They are soon seen everywhere together as Tiny is taking advantage of her publicity build-up for his own gain, until he suddenly finds out he is in love with her and confesses his duplicity. This occurs when Colder has forbid Joan to see Tiny anymore, directing her to only be seen with important people who can help her career, and Tiny thinks it is because she has dumped him.
