After the death of his wife, the custody terms for a nightclub comedy star Jerry Webster's son demands that he is raised on a remote California farm owned by the Jerry. The problem is that the property is 300 miles away from Jerry's job in a Las Vegas hotel.
Sandy is in Las Vegas for Jerry's birthday, and decides to surprise him by popping out of a closet at his birthday party. Unfortunately, she does that just as a showgirl pops out of a cake for him. The judge who awarded Jerry custody of his kids does not look kindly at this event.
Jerry's in a bit of a jam. Not only has he just been caught going through a bedroom window with his beautiful young tenant, but it's Aunt Martha who caught him, and he's having a hard time explaining what happened.
Jerry risks humiliation--not to mention whatever injuries he may receive (or, more likely, cause)--to accompany Sandy and his Boy Scout troop on a hike. Almost as important as showing Sandy that he can do it, though, is the chance to show up the troop's arrogant, obnoxious scoutmaster.
Dewey promises a beautiful blonde that he can get her into "show business". Unfortunately he uses Jerry's name to try to do it, with two potentially disastrous consequences for Jerry: losing Sue over it and earning the enmity of the blonde's gangster boyfriend.
