Never give a sucker an even break: W.C. Fields' last starring role in a feature-length film consists mainly of a series of flashbacks-- a number of disjointed, funny and bizarre scenes spoofing his own cinematic career, Hollywood and the filmmaking industry.
Poppy: W.C. Fields plays a charlatan who attempts to persuade an entire town that his daughter is actually heiress to an unclaimed fortune.
Man on the flying trapeze: Ambrose Wolfinger wants the afternoon off to go to a wrestling match. He tells his boss he needs to attend his mother-in-law's funeral. A series of mishaps lead his boss to send flowers to the house and notify papers of the death.
The old fashioned way: W.C. Fields is the Great McGonigle, manager of a theatrical troupe. Notorious for skipping out on bills and failing to pay actors, he next descends on a small town where he sets his sights on the hospitality of a wealthy widow.
You're telling me!: Sam Bisbee is an inventor who is the laughingstock in his small town. After demonstrating another failed invention, he meets a princess who promises to use her celebrity to turn his luck around.
