Jingle writer Ty Bruce and secretary Pam Thayer have grand ambitions to become a serious songwriter and a singer, respectively. Advertising agent Lynn Stafford tries to attract Ty's romantic interest, while Pam's roommate Sherry Lane offers to help Pam audition one of Ty's tunes for the "Earl Carroll Sketchbook," a big New York revue.
Carroll's stage manager Rick Castle offers a job to Pam, liking her voice and also believing she wrote the song. When she catches Ty kissing Lynn, a scheme commences with Pam pretending to suffer from amnesia after a minor accident. Ty gradually realizes how much he cares for her, whereupon both end up being hired by the revue.
