A good-looking teenage girl is driving her parents crazy, so they send her to the country to visit their uncle--a very sedate atmosphere, indeed. The uncle turns out to be a crazy inventor, though his work wasn't nearly as interesting as other films about scatter-brained inventors. During the visit, they learn that their aunt (who lives nearby) is about to lose her home, so they come up with great jingles to enter into a contest--hoping to get enough to help the old lady out of a jam. In the process, the local bachelors take their turns trying to woo the young lady.
This is a pretty bad movie--even with the usually capable acting of Slim Summerville (who is NOT at his best) and Zasu Pitts. The main problems are that the young star of this film cannot act and therefore had trouble delivering her lines as well as some bizarre musical numbers with her playing the accordion!! Perhaps this was because it was a second feature and its real purpose was to clear theater! In addition to the accordion (owch), there are a couple other performances by unnamed performers--including a surprisingly good trio that sang an Andrews Sisters-style song.
In addition to bad acting and an accordion, the film suffers from way too many songs, poor writing and an overall cheapness that shows it was hurried into production. In other words, it's a B-movie and a low-budget one at that. And, a rather limp and uninteresting one as well!
