After her father's death, Mary Rainey takes over the Rainey Circus (which
operates twice daily, rain or shine) but runs into financial troubles. In one
bit reminiscent of the Marx Brothers, the circus performers are up to
some ridiculous antics at a dinner party with the family of Bud Conway,
Mary's beau. As times become worse and the performers go on strike,
Mary must try to save the circus from rioting patrons.
