Storyline

Wealthy rancher Charley Bronson (Noah Beery) invites both of his nieces, Laurie Lang (Rosemary Lane) and Hilda Cartwright (Carole Mathews), neither of which knows him by sight, to his Texas ranch in order to watch them and decide which one should be his heir. He poses as the ranch cook while he studies the girls. Bronson is leaning toward Laurie, the night club singer, but turns against her when Hilda, who has found out the truth, secretly invites Laurie's show business and musician friends to the ranch to celebrate Laurie's "inheritance." Bronson angrily reveals his true identity and Laurie leaves. Ranch foreman Steve Andrews (Tom Tyler) who has found out that Hilda was responsible for the invitations, stops her at the train station and brings her back to the ranch, just in time for the closing number by the Hoosier Hotshots.
