Mindless Canova romp which sees the singing hillbilly sweetheart discovered while milking a cow by an operatic agent, Hunter, who takes her to the big city to perform for the highbrows. Canova doesn't take to the acting requirements of the role, however, and Hunter is forced to hire a

look-alike actress (also Canova) to perform onstage while the first Canova belts out the arias in the wings. Tiring of the snooty opera, Canova decides to perform a grass-roots version of Rossini's "William Tell" which she dubs "Tillie Tell" and, of course, it turns out to be a great success.

Musical numbers include passages from Flotow's "Martha" and Rossini's "William Tell."
