A French-Canadian girl is a champion bronc rider and is also a nightclub singer. An ambitious young man sees her act one night and is struck by her talent, realizing that she is good enough to become a Broadway star.
He convinces her to accompany him to New York, where she indeed does become a Broadway star. However, the young man finds himself being squeezed out by greedy Broadway producers who see the talented young girl as their own personal gold mine.

- The first reel, with an elaborate musical number, is taken from The Great Gabbo (1929) which had at least one sequence filmed in Multicolor.
- When originally released, the first reel of The Girl From Calgary, approximately seven minutes including the title credits, was in 2-strip Magnacolor. Reviewers at the time commented on the poor quality of the color, registration problems, and lack of focus. In surviving prints, this sequence is in black-and-white, with a replaced title card that includes a 1951 copyright statement.
