When pretty waitress and Hollywood hopeful Mary Evans (Constance Bennett) serves drinks to famous director Max Carey (Lowell Sherman), a Tinseltown cliche becomes reality, and he offers her a bit part in his new film. Almost blowing her chance due to nerves and inexperience, Mary finally clicks as an actress and becomes an overnight star. But after she marries a polo player (Neil Hamilton) who has no interest in the movie business, Max feels betrayed and descends into an alcoholic depression.
