After buying a story by Duane Decker from Collier's magazine for the grand sum of $500, Republic bosses promptly threw out the original plot but kept the title for what was to be one of their big musicals for 1940. The results are anything but big, though, it being a standard story with

Matthews as a phony promoter of charity shows. He always runs off with the money he's gathered, but now he finds himself bargaining with more than he hoped for when he gets involved with Allen, Risdon, and Terry. The three want to raise money for an orphanage, and Matthews' assistant, Downs,

finally catches on to his boss' scams and turns him in to copper Gilbert (who manages to sneak in a few turns of his famous sneezing routine). Terry and Downs become romantically involved, which may have had something to do with Downs' turnabout. Strictly formula material. Songs include: "Tequila"

(sung by Downs, Terry), "I'm Just a Weakie" (sung by Allen, Gilbert), "What Fools These Mortals Be," and "When A Fella's Got a Girl" (Jule Styne, George R. Brown, Sol Meyer).
