Aspiring actors Victor (Sonnie Hale) and Elizabeth (Jessie Matthews) each want a part in a musical show, but the casting people are quick to turn Elizabeth away. Victor, meanwhile, gets offered the role of a man who disguises himself as a woman.

However, when he unexpectedly loses his voice, he convinces Elizabeth to stand in for him. Before long, a show business agent notices and helps get Elizabeth's career off the ground - although he, and everyone else, still thinks she's a man.
