Traveling salesman Sykes arrives in an Italian village that, hard-hit by local economic depression, has lost all its young men to emigration to busier communities. One of the emigrants, having struck it rich, writes the town's mayor to ask his help in selecting a suitable village maiden

as a potential bride. All the local beauties are urged on by their parents to vie for the honor, to the ultimate consternation of the village elders. The latter decide that the first outsider to visit their community will be the one to make the choice; the outsider proves to be salesman Sykes. The

resulting contest, with its pageant of local lovelies, proves to be an entertaining farce, thanks largely to the talent of popular British TV comedian Sykes. One of the first of a series of films made by MGM British in an expansion program, the picture was never released in the US.
