William Reynolds is set to inherit $350 million on his next birthday, but his uncle says he must learn the ways of the world beforehand. His uncle hires three follies girls to guide William around New York.[1]



The reviewer for the Motion Picture Herald wrote, "Here's that rare combination of intelligent direction, brilliant dialogue, and rich humor. The result is a picture that is entertainment plus." Mordaunt Hall of The New York Times was less enthusiastic, but praised the musical numbers.[1]
