The likable Johnny Hines stars in this comedy-melodrama. Johnny (Hines) is a shoe salesman who can't remember anything. This causes him to get fired from his job, but not before he has met and fallen in love with May Brooks (Edna Murphy). May's father (Henry Barrows) owns a travel agency and Johnny manages to land a job with him as a tour guide. He takes the Brooks' on a junket to the Middle East and winds up in loads of trouble. The desert is populated with amorous sheiks and one of them kidnaps May. In addition, a prince forces Johnny to marry his ample daughter (the hefty Babe London). Nevertheless, Johnny is able to rescue May with the help of a car equipped for the desert (its tires have been replaced with shoes). After a sandstorm and a number of death-defying feats à la Douglas Fairbanks, Johnny gets May and her family safely out of the desert. Since his marriage to the princess isn't legal, he is free to wed May.
