Plot Summary
Ben Bernie (himself) is about to take the stage with his band at a trendy New York City club when Walter Winchell (himself), a wise-cracking gossip reporter, makes some choice quips at Ben's expense in front of the audience. And so begins a very public series of back-and-forth insults, with Ben and Walter eventually involving others in their game of one-upmanship, including the beautiful singing starlet Alice Huntley (Alice Faye) and a honey-voiced man with a crippling case of stage fright.
