Abstract:

Rosmer Peck is an insurance agent with musical ambitions who becomes romantically involved with Norma Perry, a showgirl who has given up spangles for a stenographer's pad. Her friends Genevieve Larkin and Sally LaVerne give up their tap shoes for gold digging and take up with executives in a theatrical production company that, unbeknowst to them or the director J.J. Hobart, is going bankrupt due to poor management. Since J.J. seems to be in poor health, the executives take out a million dollar life insurance policy in an attempt to save the company. Now Rosmer has to keep J.J. alive so he can get his commission and the executives are trying to thwart his efforts.
