Marcia Smith and Buzz Caldwell, two Army recruiting agents, encounter a strange individual, Arnold Barker.
Arnold asks Smith and Caldwell to enlist him in the Army to escape a pair of pursuers (according to Arnold, a "ringmaster" and a "fat killer dwarf" from the circus) bent on his capture because
of his ability: being able to float in air like a toy balloon.
No sooner he tells his "tale", the "ringmaster" and the "fat killer dwarf" show up at the recruiting
As it turns out, the "ringmaster" was actually an angry father, and the "fat killer dwarf"
is his young daughter who is in late term pregnancy with Arnold's baby! Arnold
was actually trying to escape a shotgun wedding!
