Manhattan working girl Jean Arthur bids goodbye to her three erstwhile suitors (Grant Withers, Hans Conried and Grady Sutton) to take a bus tour of the west. En route, she meets handsome rodeo-star John Wayne, whose bucking bronco hurls him directly into her lap. Stranded in a tank town with Wayne and his sidekick Charles Winninger, Arthur is introduced to the sort of frontier activities not covered by the tour books: gambling, boozing and brawling. Not surprisingly, Arthur wants to hightail it

War era comedy is nice turn for John Wayne, co-starring radiant Jean Arthur.
In this light, minor fare, made before he became a star, Wayne is cast as Duke Hudkins (Duke was his nickname), an easy-going rodeo rider who treasures his indpendence. .
