Haley is part of an act in which he plays the back end of a horse. He finds out he has inherited a dude ranch and shows up at the fancy place he now thinks is his. He discovers, however, that he actually owns the run-down A-Bar-B. He pulls the place out of bankruptcy by putting on a show

with help from Hilliard, Forest, and Nelson. Neither Haley's comedic touch nor Hilliard's and Forest's voices can help the weak plot. Forest, who previously worked in radio, performs a scene from Gioacchino Antonio Rossini's opera "Barber of Seville." Jerry Seelen and Lester Lee contributed

several songs to the film. "Sunday, Monday and Always" (Johnny Burke, Jimmy Van Heusen) became a hit when performed in DIXIE (1943) by Bing Crosby. Other songs are "Love and Learn," "Life Can Be Beautiful," "Take It Big," and "I'm a Big Success with You."
