Set in the 1920s, the film tells the parallel stories of three women who become performers in the renowned Broadway show the Ziegfeld Follies. It was intended to be a 1938 sequel to the 1936 hit The Great Ziegfeld, and recycled some footage from the earlier film.

Every year Florenz Ziegfeld stages his famous play, the Ziegfeld Follies, and, as every year, he's looking for new talents. Among the others, are employed three young girls: Sandra, a beautiful European beauty, Sheila, a spicy American beauty without artistic experience and Susan, a devilish little girl that comes from the hard school of vaudeville, a daughter of art. The three girls will have a hard time with the world of Broadway, discovering that all that glitters is not gold.

It will end with Sandra who'll give up Broadway's world for the love of her husband, a violin virtuoso. Sheila will remain crushed by the mirage of Luxury Park Avenue: alcoholic addicted, she'll be dismissed even from her beau. The only one who'll make a career will be Susan, who demonstrates that, even to go down The Ziegfeld stairs, it must take talent and it's not strictly necessary to be beautiful.
