Synopsis
Music teacher Eric directs a small town operetta production starring Carol. After the show, he urges Carol to attend the Jullette School of Music and Drama where he teaches. They eventually fall in love, but Carol wants to earn money as a singer so they can be married and Eric is opposed. She agrees to sing in Marty’s nightclub and breaks up with Eric as a result. Carol becomes Marty’s girl, but he's a crook and tells her to “be nice” to a visiting gangster. She’s nearly raped before Eric comes to her rescue. They get back together.

Indexer Notes

The "Jullette School of Music and Drama" is probably a reference to the Julliard School in New York City.

Characters
Lucy Lorr; Dr. Martin Harris; Jane White; Mr. Lorr; Mrs. Lorr
Synopsis
Hospital patient Lucy falls in love with her doctor, Martin, and he feels the same way. However, he’s serious and she’s “the gay, fun loving type.” Hospital worker Jane suggests Lucy become more serious herself, so Lucy asks Martin if he’s thought about going into private practice to make more money. This turns Martin off and Lucy discovers Jane deliberately sabotaged their romance by giving her bad advice. Jane and Martin become engaged. When Lucy later bumps into Martin on an emergency call, he tells her that he dumped Jane and really loves her.
