Eileen Percy plays Fan Tilden, a small-town waitress who takes a shine on down-and-outer Alan Dix (Kenneth Gibson). When Alan is thrown in the hoosegow on a trumped-up charge, Fan sneaks into jail as part of an entertainment troupe to help her boyfriend escape. The twosome heads to the Big City to nail the real crooks. Big Town Ideas was directed by Carl Harbaugh, later a prolific comedy writer at such studios as Hal Roach. Featured in the cast was another future Roach employee, comic-turned-director James Parrott (brother of Roach star Charley Chase).
