George White, just having finished a successful run of his musical show, "Scandals," travels by train to Florida for a vacation. On his way, he passes through Crossways, a small town in Georgia, where he is surprised to see his own name on the marquee of the town's theater. His curiosity piqued by this blatant attempt to capitalize on his success, George leaves the train and buys a ticket for the show. The show plays to a mostly empty house, but George is impressed by the talents of Honey Walters, a young singer. George offers Honey a job singing in his show in New York, and Honey's Aunt Jane, who failed in her own attempts to become a performer and who now has high hopes for her niece, encourages him to hire Eddie Taylor, Honey's childhood sweetheart and a composer, of whom Aunt Jane is also fond. George agrees, and back in New York, Eddie and Honey are a big success. However, at a club, Eddie meets the washed up actress and singer Miss Marilyn Collins, and Daniels, George's rival producer, flirts with Honey. George later learns that Eddie and Honey have been showing up at rehearsals and shows late and have been giving lackluster performances. George confronts Eddie about his conduct, and the young composer takes offense and quits. Next, he catches Honey arriving at the theater late and fires her. Honey asks Daniels for a job, and he offers her his love instead, which she refuses. Meanwhile, Eddie takes a low-paying job in a show in Scranton, Pennsylvania and arrives there to find Honey performing in the chorus line. Aunt Jane arrives at George's theater, hoping to see Eddie and Honey perform, as they have not written her in months. George will not tell Aunt Jane the truth, and he sets her up in a hotel room while he searches frantically for the missing pair. After he discovers that Eddie and Honey have been performing in Scranton, he finds them at the New York train station and puts them back into his show. Their performance a success, Eddie and Honey reunite with a contented Aunt Jane and then announce that they have married.
