Description by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment:
In this "lavish and gorgeous" (Hollywood Reporter) romantic musical featuring the Oscar®-winning song, "You'll Never Know", Alice Faye portrays a talented singer abandoned by her ambitious saloon-owner beau (John Payne) for a heartless socialite. After becoming a huge star in England, she returns when his marriage crumbles, hoping that he still loves her.
Two song-and-dance couples rise to stardom as a cabaret act on San Francisco's Barbary Coast at the turn of the century. But when the quartet's leader, Johnny Cornell, gets involved with a wealthy socialite, he drops his girlfriend Trudy, the group's honky-tonk singer. So Trudy heads to Europe where she achieves further success, later returning to the Bay area for another chance at a partnership with Johnny.
