Cast & Crew
Guinn "big Boy" Williams
Reporter Vera Wright is assigned to write a "sob" story about failed cowboy movie star Stoney Rhodes, whose mother is on the verge of losing her home. After Stoney learns that his last public appearance has been canceled for lack of interest, Vera agrees to drive him to the bus station. Her car runs out of gas near a farm belonging to singer Eddy Arnold, and Vera asks Stoney to buy some gas from him. Stoney arrives in the middle of amateur tryouts for the big hospital benefit that Eddy is hosting. Instead of gas, the inarticulate Stoney buys a ticket for the show with the last of his money. He then tries to steal it back, but Eddy's farm foreman, Small Potatoes, thwarts his efforts. Stoney is finally rescued from Small Potatoes by the arrival of Vera, who has grown tired of waiting for him. When singer Carolina Cotton, who has taken a liking to Stoney, learns of his mother's plight, she suggests that he capture some wanted bank robbers for the reward. Then Eddy offers Stoney a job as a farmhand. Later, Eddy asks Vera to accompany him to a theater which is showing one of Stoney's movies. They discover that Stoney has a wonderful singing voice, and Eddy calls his agent Sam, who has been looking for a new cowboy singer. Back at the farm, a smitten Carolina has been doing Stoney's work for him, even after Stoney discloses that he has a crush on Vera. Meanwhile, the escaping bank robbers commandeer Sam's car and force him to drive them to the farm. After Sam and the men arrive, Stoney reveals that Gene Autry dubbed his singing voice in the movie. Privately, Sam lets Eddy know that the other men are the escaped robbers. The robbers decide to steal the receipts from the benefit performance and, realizing that Stoney is the weakest of the men, send him to collect the money. In the meantime, Carolina gives Stoney his first kiss, and suddenly, he realizes that he loves Carolina, which makes him courageous. After a complicated battle, Stoney singlehandedly rounds up the robbers, and now that he is a hero, eight different movie studios offer him a contract. His money problems solved, Stoney embraces Carolina.
