Cast & Crew
Winnie Harper, a wisecracking blues singer who can never refuse a favor, is the principal entertainer at the club of racketeer "Big John" and is in love with Jerry, a gang member. Attracted by Winnie's ability, Jerry begins dating her and eventually becomes her manager, hoping thus to go straight. She is successful in a fashionable club, where Jerry meets and becomes romantically involved with Iris, a wealthy society girl; and to keep up with Iris' social set, he joins Big John's gang in another job. Jerry tells Winnie of his love for Iris, but she deems it a mere infatuation; then he is arrested, and Winnie raises the money for his bail, but she is broken-hearted when he returns to Iris. With the help of Tommy, her faithful pianist, she is installed in a revue; then Jerry is mortally wounded in an argument with the gang, and he dies in her arms. Realizing that he has backed her show, Winnie finds strength to go on.
