Ebsen is a lawman who inherits the ranch of a dead buddy and, along with that, the man's troublemaking son, Dullea. The lawman figures he can settle the kid down if he can get him married. Ebsen finds the perfect woman via mail order, and the young man is married to Nettleton. Problems
still arise for Ebsen and the newlyweds, though, resulting in a few good chuckles. Director Kennedy went on to direct other western comedies, THE ROUNDERS and SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SHERIFF.
