Rodeo rider Lonnie Beale, a handsome singer, is employed by Vera Radford, proprietress of a dude ranch and beauty spa. Although he is befriended by handyman Stanley Potter, Lonnie arouses the jealousy of swimming instructor Brad Bentley. Despite her suspicion that Lonnie is a fortune hunter, physical education teacher Pam Merritt falls in love with him. Pam is the victim of repeated abduction attempts, which, she is informed by Deputy Sheriff Sturdivant, are inspired by her possession of a map of buried treasure. When she sees Lonnie kissing Vera, Pam breaks up with him, refusing to listen to his explanations. Back on the rodeo circuit, Lonnie finds himself preoccupied with Pam and is convinced by Stanley to return to her. He and Stanley locate Pam in Silverado, a restored ghost town and site of the treasure. During a night spent in a wax museum, the trio is assaulted by a procession of monsters, who are revealed to be Adolf, the ranch chef; Jerry, the groom; Henry, the gardener; and Deputy Sheriff Sturdivant. In the confrontation, the treasure is discovered. Assisted by Brad, Lonnie subdues the intruders. After a wedding at the ranch, Lonnie and Pam drive off, with Stanley trapped in a washtub he has tied to their car.
