Leave it to his ambitious younger brother Don to capture a camera-shy heiress on film and save his older sng's job. Unfortunately, rich Betty Kelly hates having her face splashed on every movie screen in town, so she conspires to take control of the film company. Meanwhile, the spoiled socialite's bogus fiance hatches a blackmail scheme to fleece her of her fortunes.

He later went on to direct all eight of RKO's Mexican Spitfire comedies of 1939-1943.
