The contest is the brainchild of Larry Sawyer, press agent for Horace's company, but Horace takes undeserving credit for its success. Horace is in love with Linda as is Larry. The latter is opening a nightclub in partnership with Pedro Gonzales. Linda reaches the finals of the contest and gets the most applause. But Horace announces another contestant has won, as he doesn't want Linda to have a career. Larry gives Linda a two-week contract performing at his Casa Manana night club. Horace hires Maury Sanford, a booking agent, to double-cross Larry and fail to deliver the promised acts. But wait, Larry's hired help and waiters, are the Rio Brothers, Spade Cooley, Yadira Jiminez, Armando & Lita, and other out-of-work performers on Sunset Strip, and they just might save the day.
