The plot involves a newspaper reporter (Ed Sullivan, aka "Mr. Broadway") gathering material for his column. The plot was patterned on a similar film by columnist Walter Winchell, Broadway Through a Keyhole (1933). The Sullivan film primarily serves as a vehicle for him to escort viewers to various trendy New York nightclubs to watch celebrities.[1]


The section of the film with Parlo, Desmond, and Moore is taken from an uncompleted film by Edgar G. Ulmer, titled Love's Interlude or The Warning Shadow, and begun in 1932 at Peerless Productions.[2]
