Overview

Theatrical agent Waldo Main (John Eldredge) is inducted into the army, and turns his (now clientless) agency over to his secretary Dottie Duncan (Joan Davis). Dottie decides to organize an all-girl orchestra to fill the void caused by so many orchestra members being called to service due to WWII, and joins struggling singers/songwriters Sally Richards (Jane Frazee) and Sue Ford (Judy Clark) in this endeavor. Dottie's screwball schemes to get engagements for the group often lead to disaster.
