Description by OLDIES.com:

Working class stenographer Sheba Miller (Alice White) thinks she's heading for a dull, luxury-less married life with her Regular Joe beau, Jack (William Bakewell), a soda jerk that works for Sheba's father. Trying to show Sheba a good time on his meager earnings, Jack takes her to an exclusive underworld nightclub, The Pirate's Den. Realizing he does not have the dough for the Den, Jack tries to leave when Sheba defiantly enters a "knees contest" judged by gentlemanly gangster Nicky Solomon (Chester Morris). Nicky selects Sheba for the silver cup by slipping a garter on her thigh, and the rest is sparks and swoons. Sheba promptly defies Pa and leaves Jack in the cold and hitches her star to Nicky. But smooth-talking Nicky has a secret: he has less jack than Jack, but is desperate to do anything to change that.
