With fame, fortune and fans galore, silent screen idol Don Lockwood thought he had it all. But one look at aspiring actress Kathy Seldon, and he knew exactly what he was missing. Now he's swinging from lampposts, singing in the raindrops and ready for love.

The Broadway Melody offers snarky, wiseacre humor, and effervescent charm. The Mahoney Sisters are successful singers in the boondocks, and now they've come to New York for the big time. Hank (Henrietta) is the smart one, while Queenie is the beautiful one--as Hank's fiancé Eddie Kearns says, they're "a coupla swell kids." Songwriter Eddie gets the girls a part in a revue featuring his song, "The Broadway Melody." Eddie, long engaged to Hank, falls for Queenie, whom he hasn't seen since she was a little girl. But Eddie and Queenie are both devoted to Hank, so Queenie gives in to the wooing of one of the show's rich backers, so as not to come between Hank and Eddie. This only causes more trouble, because both Hank and Eddie know exactly what kind of danger Queenie is courting by putting herself in a playboy's hands

The band wagon: Tony Hunter is a famous singer/dancer/movie star who is feeling washed up. But his old friends Lily and Les Martin have an idea for a funny little Broadway show and Tony agrees to do it. Things begin to get out of hand when bigshot 'artistic' director/producer/star Jeffrey Cordova joins the production. He proclaims it's a modernistic Faust and insists on hiring a prima ballerina, Gabrielle Gerard, to star opposite Tony. It's hate at first sight. Her jealous choreographer isn't helping matters. The show looks doomed, but romance, an epiphany, and a triumphant opening are waiting in the wings
