Robert Courtland, a wealthy theatrical producer, and Joe Clark, his dance director, are rehearsing a new musical comedy when Lora Nixon, in whom Courtland is interested, quits the production to marry young Donald Ogden, a composer. Ogden's wealthy family, however, stop his allowance, and the couple are forced to occupy a modest flat. He tries to continue work on a symphony, and Lora takes back her chorus job. Lora's brother, Dash, and his wife, Dot, scornful of his serious endeavors, taunt Donald into writing a popular song and induce Courtland to back another revue in which they have parts. Courtland persuades Donald that he is hampering Lora's chances for a career; and after a visit to Courtland's apartment, Lora decides to leave her husband. But when his song proves the hit of the show, Lora is reunited with Donald.
