Gilder sleeves practices his crooning, only to be interrupted by Leroy’s pop tune, Mr Five by Five. Everyone seems to love the jivy tune, except for Gildy. Being the bratty little brother, Leroy teases Marjorie about her latest crush.
Though he may not be up on the pop culture and idols of the kids these days, Gildy shares about his own entertainment idols.
Feeling rejected by his family, Gildy goes to see if Leila Ransom will be up for a night at the theater. Will the fickle love interest fall for Gildy’s advances?

At the theater, Gildy keeps up his empty boasting about knowing the star. He later shows up at Leila’s party with the aging actress on his arm. Will she sing him the son that he has been hoping to hear?
