Harvard educated Danny Collins (Rudy Vallee) and street-wise Mike Armstrong (Richard Lane) team up to form the most successful talent agency in New York. Armstrong is in love with nightclub and Broadway songstress Frances Lewis (Rosemary Lane), determined to make her nationally famous with his and Danny's help. Collins sees her, correctly, as a self-centered opportunist willing to capitalize on Mike's affections to further her career. Eventually, she causes Danny and Mike to split. Danny and his assistant 'Off-Beat' Davis (Allen Jenkins) meet Frances' maid Kitty Brown (Ann Miller), a shy tap-dancing wonder, and try to find her work... but without Mike, their new agency can't get going successfully. Mike is in the same bind.

When Danny has the opportunity to produce a New York television variety show with Kitty and Joan Merrill (as herself), he and Mike make amends. But Frances blackmails Danny, threatening to break Mike's heart if she isn't cast as the star.

Moe, Larry and Curly costar as out-of-work actors trying to find jobs thru Danny's and Mike's agency. They perform the "Maharaja" routine, the "Melodrama" sketch, disguise themselves as inept Western Union messengers to invade the agency, and masquerade as gangsters to trick Frances. The film's musical finale begins with the Stooges and 'Brenda & Cobina' performing a hilarious rhumba number, with Curly costumed as Carmen Miranda. *

Production stills show that the Stooges had at least one other scene, unfortunately cut before release.

An early showcase for Ann Miller's dancing talent, she closes the film with an energetic tap performance, as good as anything she later became famous for at MGM.

Look closely and don't blink if you'd like to see Alan Hale Jr. (GILLIGAN's 'Skipper') in one of his first acting roles, a small cameo in the opening minutes.

* Moe, Larry & Shemp appeared with Carmen Miranda on THE COLGATE COMEDY HOUR (Dec. 16, 1951).

The Stooges are hobos thrown off a freight train and chased out of the railroad yard. They hide in the "Hangover Athletic Club," where Curly is hired as a sparring partner. Ivan Bustoff, wrestling World Champion, takes a shine to the Stooges, and his manager Tony hires them to keep on eye on Bustoff and make sure he doesn't drink. Ivan gets plastered regardless, followed by the boys knocking him cold with dumbells. Moe sends out Curly disguised as Bustoff, hoping that his violent reaction to "Wild Hyacinth" perfume will win the match and keep Tony's gang from knocking them off.
