Plot Summary
Sarah Millick (Jeanette MacDonald) is engaged to marry Harry Daventry (Edward Ashley), but it's an arranged marriage.

Once there, they struggle to make ends meet. Carl tries desperately to sell an operetta he wrote, while Sarah fights off the leering approaches of Baron von Tranisch (George Sanders).
