Synopsis

As part of his fraternity initiation, Eddie Fripp is directed to kick the first man he meets and kiss the first female: a college professor is the recipient of the kick, and Margie, a salesclerk, is dismayed to see Eddie kiss a young co-ed. Eddie and Margie are separated at the school dance when he is suspended for his actions, and she is left without an explanation. He goes to New York to work as a singer in Pierre's Cafe and incurs the wrath of the owner by distracting his flirtatious wife. On the night of a holdup, "Whispering" Jack Smith is knocked unconscious in the broadcasting room and Eddie is forced to take his place; his quavering voice is a sensation, and Pierre is obliged to retain him. Meanwhile, Eddie makes up with Margie by telephone, and she comes to New York to marry him; but fearing marriage will ruin his career, Pierre plans a frameup to discredit him in her eyes. But Eddie proves himself innocent, and reconciliation follows.
