Synopsis

Circus owner Gabby Gilfoil finds himself at odds with the county sheriff, Ben Holden, because of bad debts, and the sheriff is deluded into thinking the good-hearted carney to be one and the same as the notorious Slippery Sawtelle, whose mug is gracing $1,500 "wanted" posters all over the county. Gilfoil could use a like amount to help pretty Miss Malarkey out of a financial debt to Simeon Trott, but he must elude the persistent sheriff. Holden finally nails the real Sawtelle.
