Plot Summary
Eustace McGargle (W.C. Fields) is a bred-in-the-bone schemer whose latest con is set to bring him a fortune -- if he can beat the competition. After blowing into Green Meadows with the traveling carnival, McGargle discovers a fake countess who claims to be heir to the Putnam family fortune. Aided by a crooked lawyer, McGargle installs his adopted daughter, Poppy (Rochelle Hudson), as the true heir, which throws a wrench into her budding romance with local boy Billy Farnsworth (Richard Cromwell).
