Country bumpkin Aaron Slick (Alan Young) has been unsuccessfully courting pretty young
widow Josie Beery (Dinah Shore) for years. Josie yearns for a fling in the big city. With
$20,000 from a crooked deal stashed in their trunk, Bill Merridew (Robert Merrill) and his
"kissing cousin" Gladys (Adele Jergens), stars, in a relative sense, of a touring tent show
stop at Josie's farm. Merridew, actually hiding out, thinks there is oil on the farm and Aaron,
knowing otherwise, tricks him into buying the farm for a large sum. Josie takes the money
and runs to Chicago, with Merridew, realizing he was tricked, in hot pursuit. Aaron arrives in
time to keep Josie from letting Merridew "invest" her money.
