Storyline

When actress Pat Halliday gets out of a jam with the help of farmer Corey Lake, she invites him to come see her sometime in the big city. Corey, who is actually a millionaire who dabbles in farming, shows up, much to Pat's surprise. She hooks Corey up with her brother George, who has business ideas he wants Corey to invest in. But Corey's pals Pig Head and Mary think Pat and her family are only out for Corey's money, and that Pat plans to marry him to get it. Pat's family, on the other hand, thinks Corey's pals are unsophisticated hicks and want him to drop them. When a valuable necklace disappears, the courtship of Pat and Corey seems doomed.
