Cast & Crew
Eddie Kane, a brash vaudeville juggler and acrobat, falls in love with Elsa McCoy, one of Dunn's Dancing Dames. After they are married, Elsa becomes a success in the movies. Eddie remains in vaudeville and, chafing at his lack of advancement, comes to believe that Elsa has been unfaithful to him with Val D'Errico, a handsome actor. Eddie and Elsa separate, and he takes a bad fall during a high wire act. During a later comeback attempt, Eddie loses his nerve until unexpectedly Elsa appears onstage and assures him of her continuing love and fidelity. Eddie completes his act, and he and Elsa are reunited.
MGM initially intended Singin' in the Rain (1952) to be a remake of this film.
