Struggling singer Judy Jones (Leslie) discovers she's entitled to a multimillion-dollar fortune, as long as she can live up to the terms of her late uncle's will.

On campus, Jones struggles to win the heart of a dashing professor, Bartholomew Williams (Prince).

Bosley Crowther of The New York Times said, "If you can imagine a combination of a Nineteen Thirties "college musical" and a second-rate silent slapstick shot completely "off the cuff," then you can picture in your mind's eye the Warners' Cinderella Jones, a little package of fluff and painful cut-ups which came to the Strand yesterday. And we trust that you can so imagine, for it would be very difficult indeed to convey a more accurate impression of this nonsensical and amateurish film."
