A look at the backstage goings-on at a burlesque theater. A successful entertainer's life goes down the tubes when he hits the bottle. His wife leaves him because of his philandering, but returns when she sees how much he really needs her. One scene of the Ziegfeld Follies uses two-tone Technicolor technology. This was re-made twice, once as Swing High, Swing Low in 1937 and as When My Baby Smiles At Me in 1948. Carroll replaced the stage lead, who was said to have no "name recognition".
