Leon and Frank Weaver were comic actors from the Ozarks, joined by sister June, who was billed as "Elviry," the name of the character she plays in the film. A young Alan Ladd plays a featured role.


A family of sharecroppers, the Weavers, takes up residence in the home of a rich man named Pittman after they are forced off their land. They sell off Mrs. Pittman's furs and meet Junior Pittman's troupe of dancing girls. After they befriend Mr. Pittman, they persuade him to play dead until he can learn exactly how the rest of his family feels about him.
