Professional temperament and backstage jealousy confront young Peggy Lane when she lands a bit part in the road company of the hit comedy, Innocent Laughter. Elated over winning the role, the aspiring actress quickly learns that a good play does not necessarily spell success. It takes good people too!

She aids in the search for a character actor to play the male lead, feeling triumphant when she locates Tom Agate, beloved but retired vaudeville trouper, who reluctantly consents to audition. But Katherine Nelson, the prima donna who is to star in the show, throws a temper tantrum, claiming it beneath her dignity to play with a "has-been" comedian, and demanding both Peggy and Tom Agate be thrown out of the show!

The young girl, who all her life has dreamed of her professional debut, is demoralized as she realizes that theatrical rivalry can stifle the joy of creativity.

But she believes in Tom Agate, and her faith is vindicated when she unravels a theatrical mystery which explains the conduct of the arrogant star!
