At the height of Hollywood's "talkie" proliferation, vaudeville performers George (Jack Oakie), May (Aline MacMahon) and Jerome (Russell Hopton) pretend to be connoisseurs of new technology to get jobs at a noted studio. Soon they are under increasing pressure to demonstrate their "expertise." George manages to convince the head of the studio (Gregory Ratoff) to let him produce a film as a vehicle for his new girlfriend (Sidney Fox). Inevitably, antics and misunderstandings ensue.
