Roy, an insurance agent working undercover as a showboat singer, is awaiting the appearance of a supposed bank robber who has broken out of jail. Roy tries to recover the stolen money from the unassuming crook.
Insurance Investigator Roy is looking for Weston and the missing money he supposedly obtained in a robbery. When he catches him and listens to his story, he changes his mind about him. A freak accident locates the missing money box and they find the seal unbroken. Roy then announces the box will be opened at the showboat that evening.Written by

Roy Rogers (as Roy) is an insurance investigator who goes undercover to solve a robbery; among the suspects is Dale Evans (as Betty Weston)'s father Harry Shannon (as Sam Weston), who has just broken jail. Mr. Rogers gets a job singing on Ms. Evans' show boat "Yellow Rose of Texas". Later, Bob Nolan and the "Sons of the Pioneers" are hired, too. Evans doesn't think her dear father Harry Shannon is guilty. Do you?
Mr. Nolan and the Sons are in fine voice, with the first rendition of "Timber!" an obvious highlight. The plot really doesn't make much sense, by Rogers seems to figure it out (so you won't have to); it is resolved with the opening of a box on the "Show Boat". Watch as a fake horse almost knocks Dale Evans over when she enters to sing the final version of the title song!
