Three young men and three young women share an apartment in all innocence - they are would be stage folk and they are doing this for economic security

Their apartment is immediately above that of a Broadway producer who is about to cast a road company so they rehearse the play, but how can they get him upstairs to see it?

It happens that the producer is an amateur chef and, right in the middle of a culinary concoction, he runs out of flour

He comes upstairs to borrow a cup

At last the kids have him and they aren't going to let him go until he sees some evidence of their ability - so they stage a murder!

But it's so realistic that police swarm into the scene with hilarious results
