A washed up boxing manager (Walter Huston) climbs out of the bottle when he discovers barroom bouncer Steve Morgan (Max Baer) has the makings of a contender. As Steve trains for his first fight, he meets and falls in love with singer Belle (Myrna Loy), the girlfriend of nightclub owner and gangster Willie Ryan. Steve's career is on the rise when he and Belle marry, breaking Ryan's heart. Willie vows that if Steve ever gives Belle one unhappy day, that's when he'll take his revenge. Morgan may give him the chance, when fame and ego turns him into a straying husband. Eventually Belle leaves him, so Ryan arranges for Steve to fight heavyweight champ Primo Carnero, planning for Carnero to destroy Steve in the ring.

Discoveries of promotional newsreel footage (see MOVIETONE NEWS) and production photographs reveal that Moe, Larry and Curly may have participated in the filming of this MGM feature film, without Ted. Whatever footage they had is not in the released version, and the extent of their scenes is currently unknown, although it's assumed that it was nothing more than a cameo. Research continues.

The Stooges' inheritance from their late Uncle Ambrose has been stolen by crooked investment broker Icabod Slipp. The boys go to Slipp's office to subpoena him, but he beats each of them up, rips up their subpoenas, and takes off on a train with the boys' inheritance. The Stooges trail him, but before finding him they accidentally let a lion loose on the train. The boys finally catch up to Slipp, and the chase is on.

Curly Howard, who had retired, makes a cameo in this film as a snoring passenger.
