Stepping out of family vaudeville act, Buster Keaton starts with bit roles in films, and soon gains popularity with his own films. Casting director Gloria Brent falls for him, but he adores film-star Peggy Courtney, whose rejection drives him to drinking. His career suffers with advent of talkies, worsening his alcoholism. Now only Gloria’s love can bring him back to his comedy.
