Con artist Peaches O'Day gets into trouble with the New York City law, but Jim McCarey, a police captain, likes her enough that he lets her off with a promise from Peaches to leave town. She hatches a scheme instead with the wealthy Van Doon and butler Graves to perform as a singer, calling herself Fifi, disguised in a black wig.

Quade, a chief of police with political ambitions, makes a pass at "Fifi" and is rejected. In anger, he orders the club closed. Capt. McCarey refuses and becomes Quade's rival, even persuaded to run against him for mayor.

Before giving a speech at Madison Square Garden during the campaign, McCarey is kidnapped. He escapes just in time and the publicity is helpful in his election victory. It turns out that Peaches planned the whole thing, resulting in a romantic relationship with the new mayor of New York.
