COMEDY-DRAMA. The Pacific Fleet comes into port, and the girls from the Roseland Dance Hall come dockside to wish the boys welcome. Eddie Briggs, a self-styled sailor sheik, is greatly attracted by Peaches Deane, a dime-a-dance girl with a heart of gold. That evening, Eddie goes to Roseland, and he and Peaches win a dance contest. He takes her home, gets fresh, and is shown the gate. Back on board ship, Eddie realizes that he loves Peaches and returns to Roseland to find her wearing Doyle's ring. There is a brawl, and Eddie is arrested. Peaches takes the blame for the fight, however, and Eddie is freed. He must leave immediately with the fleet, but he promises to return for her.
