  • Rough-but-tender Charlie Rogers hopes that, in Maggie Morgan's carnival, he has finally found a steady singing job. Maggie, in turn, sees in the sexy, popular Charlie a way out of her financial difficulties.

    As Charlie begins to draw a host of listeners, he becomes attracted to Cathy Lean. Their mutual affection grows, but Cathy's brother, Joe, the curmudgeonly carnival supervisor, puts a stop to that.

    After a fight with Joe and a disagreement with Cathy, Charlie splits this sideshow for another carnival. Meanwhile, a variety of intriguing events, including a misplaced wallet and relentless brunette, thrust Charlie back into conflict with Joe... and possibly back into the company of Cathy.
