Zerelda King is assigned to look into possible illegal and unethical activity at an orphanage, which may or may not involve her fiance.

A boy named Tad flees from the orphanage, meantime, and is given a ride by Doc Tilbee, a man with a traveling medicine show.



Movie critic Leonard Maltin considers this to be a "pleasant musical".[3]
