Ben Lyon plays an aspiring boxer in this pre-code drama. Cookie Bradford

(Lyon) toils at a diner and works out at the gym while waiting for his big

break. His one supporter is the gym owner's daughter, Honey (Constance

Cummings). When her father dies suddenly, she decides to take over his

business. The fighters, however, have no faith in a woman, and they all

walk out on her -- except for Bradford. She begins coaching him and he

starts winning fights. But when they marry and head for the big city, male

prejudice towards Honey works against them until she manages to place

Bradford in a charity fight held by a socialite (Thelma Todd, on loan from

the Hal Roach Studios). Bradford then fights his way up to Madison

Square Garden, but it all goes to his head. He ignores Honey in favor of

the socialite, and dumps her as a manager in favor of Dan Wilson, a man

with a big name and big promises. But Bradford's luck runs out and he

loses his way to the bottom of the bill. It takes Honey's ingenuity to make

him into a contender once again. This was Edward N. Buzzell's debut as a

feature film director.
