John Kent is a star football player, who finds his talents are more appreciated on the gridiron than on the dance floor of the Alpha Beta Phi Fraternity House of Haverhill College. His fiancée, Sophie Teale is irked at his clumsiness and embarrassing lack of ballroom charm. They quarrel and Sophie leaves for Paris with her mother.
John becomes heir to Roberta’s, an exclusive dress shop in Paris. He and Stephanie, a Russian exiled princess who is the dress designer of the establishment, together put on a stunning fashion show accompanied by an on-stage band.
John is jealous of Ladislaw, the doorman at Roberta’s, who seems to be very intimate with Stephanie. Later he finds that Ladislaw is only her cousin and is delighted. "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," Lovely To Look At, "Let’s Begin" and "Devastating" are among the hit Jerome Kern tunes from this show.
