Don Lockwood is a silent film star who barely tolerates his vapid leading lady, Lina Lamont, who is convinced their screen romance is real. After the first talking picture proves to be a smash hit, the studio decides they have no choice but to convert the new Lockwood/Lamont film into a talkie. The production is beset with difficulties, by far the worst being Lina’s comically grating voice. After a disastrous test screening, Don’s best friend comes up with the idea to overdub Lina’s voice! Meanwhile, Don falls in love with aspiring actress Kathy Selden, who is providing the voice for Lina. When Lina finds out, she does everything possible to sabotage the romance!
