Directed by Dorothy Arzner, While dancing at the Palais Royale in Akron, Ohio, Bubbles, a cynical blonde chorine, and Judy O’Brien, an aspiring young ballerina, meet Jimmy, the scion of a wealthy family. Both women are attracted to Jimmy, a tormented young man who is still in love with his estranged wife Elinor. Back in New York, Bubbles finds work in a burlesque club, while Madame Basilova, the girls’ teacher and manager, arranges an audition for Judy with ballet impresario Steve. En route to the audition, Madame Basilova is run over by a car and killed, and Judy, intimidated by the other dancers, flees before she can meet Steve. As she leaves the building, Judy shares an elevator with Steve, who offers her a cab ride, but she is unaware of who he is and rejects his offer.
