Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are the darlings of the silent silver screen. Offscreen, Don, aided by his happy-go-lucky friend and piano accompanist, Cosmo Brown, has to dodge Lina’s romantic overtures, especially when he falls for chorus girl Kathy Selden. With the advent of sound in motion pictures, it is decided to turn Don and Lina’s new film into a musical “talkie.” The only problem is Lina’s voice, which mere words cannot describe. Thus, Kathy is brought on to dub her speaking and singing voice in secret, and Don’s on top of the world. But then Lina finds out and the situation escalates into chaos with a frustrated director, a profit-seeking studio head and all of Hollywood buzzing about the arrival of the talkies.
