Chorus girl Gloria Carroll inherits one million dollars from Broadway playboy Herbert Dinwiddle. Producer Ned McLane persuades her to advance him the money on a production called "Lucky Legs" that will star her. The will causes problems in two places; Racketeer Pinky Connors is mad as the money is his as Dinwiddle was really his absconding bookkeeper, and, in Elmville, Dinwiddle's two spinster sisters, Annabelle Dinwiddle and Henrietta Dinwiddle, learn they are getting $10,000 each. Pinkie's lawyer suggests he get power-of-attorney over Gloria's funds. Henrietta wants to contest the will, hires a local young law school graduate, Jimmy Abercrombie and the trio set off for New York. Jimmy obtains an injunction against Pinkie that also serves to shut off McLane's credit for "Lucky Legs." To open the show and provide employment for her roommates, "Calamity" Jane Edwards and Jewel Perkins, Gloria offers to settle for $25,000 with Henrietta, who refuses. Annebelle, who likes Gloria, arranges for Pinkie to kidnap her, the ransom being Henrietta's withdrawal of her half of the injunction. Pinkie's henchmen make a mistake and kidnap Annabelle instead.
