WARNING!! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!
Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are the apple of Hollywood’s eye, and the hot news in all the gossip rags, but the reality is very different from what they portray on screen. Lina is actually a selfish, scheming woman, living in the dream world of the gossip magazines where she is Don’s fiancee. Don also tends to let his populairy go to his head, although he has his old friend Cosmo to keep him grounded. One night while fleeing some over-zealous fans, Don meets Kathy Selden. Kathy doesn’t like his self-assured attitude, and says several biting comments to cut him down to size before leaving.
Don takes her comments to heart, and begins to doubt whether he is a good actor or not. At a party to celebrate Don and Lina’s newest film, Kathy appears from a cake, showing that she wasn’t the stage actress she had claimed to be. Don teases her, and in her anger, Kathy accidently smashes a cake into Lina. Lina causes her to loose her job. Don searches her out and finds her now working in his movie company! The two reconcile and Don begins to win Kathy over.
Meanwhile, Hollywood is being swept with a new sensation: talking films. These “talkies” have become a huge hit, and R.F. is determined that his film company will join the game. Unfortunately, Lina’s voice makes her an impossible choice for a screen actress, and an early preview of Don and Lina’s movie is a laughing stock. Don, Cosmo, and Kathy have a late-night brainstorming session, and decide to change the film into a musical. Kathy agrees to dub over Lina’s voice for this one movie.
Lina finds out about the secret arrangement and uses a subclause of her contract to trap R.F. into agreeing to make Kathy her dubbed voice forever, with the other woman never getting any acknowledgement. Kathy finds out about this at the premiere of the new movie. But Don and Cosmo have a plan to embarrass Lina and rescue Kathy...
