Norma Shearer stars as Linda Paige Broadway’s most brilliant comedienne, Walter Abel as her playwright husband Gaylord Esterbrook, Mary Astor as Amanda and Hattie McDaniel as the Esterbrook maid Clementine.

Linda Paige the Broadway actress is one of the most glamorous women in New York. Most men would give their right arm to have dinner with her however Gay Esterbrook doesn’t even give it a thought but then you see he’s Linda’s husband and a playwright besides if that explains it. At any rate he hasn’t been home since early morning and as the curtain raises Clementine his maid is making calls trying to locate him!
