In this riotous showbiz comedy a producer, his secretary and associates try to re write an epic drama by a neophyte playwright into a broad farce. A vicious gossip columnist tries to blackmail the producer into marriage while a scatterbrained old character actor erroneously creates the impression that the leading lady has died. The author, also an apprentice mortician, is appalled by the histrionics that accompany the opening of a Broadway show. As the columnist draws mistaken conclusions that this show is really a cover for a bizarre murder cult, the rest of the group foster this impression and substitute a lady undertaker in the role of the much alive leading lady. Mistaken identities, romance, and silly situations combine to keep the audience laughing through three acts of hilarity.
