Summary
A musical sparked by Cantor's performance as a hyper-hypochondriac come West for a cure. He offers to give a ride to Sally, a woman in love with a Native American of mixed descent, who is running from an unwanted wedding with another man. But everyone thinks that they have eloped and they pursue the couple. Features some of Busby Berkeley's most fanciful choreography
