Rusty Parker, a red-headed leggy dancer at Danny McGuire&#39s Night Club in Brooklyn, wants to be a successful Broadway star. She enters a contest to be a &#39Cover Girl&#39 as a stepping-stone in her career. She reminds the publisher, John Coudair, of his lost love, showgirl Maribelle Hicks. He was engaged to Maribelle, although his wealthy society mother made fun of her. Maribelle left John at the altar when she saw the piano at her wedding. It reminded her of the piano-player she truly loved. Rusty is Maribelle&#39s granddaughter and there are musical sequences with Maribelle dancing to songs from the beginning of the 20th century. Rusty lands on the cover of her grandmother&#39s former fiancé&#39s magazine (as a bride). She is pursued by Coudair&#39s pal, the wealthy theatrical producer, Noel Wheaton. He produces a lavish musical to star Rusty, surrounded by real cover girls of the mid 1940&#39s. Rusty runs down a huge spiral into the arms of dozens of men who seem clumsy next to her ethereal dancing. ...
