Frank Morgan stars as vaudevillian Henry Conroy, who puts show business behind him when he inherits a dilapidated Arizona ranch. For some reason, several interested parties, most of them wielding six-guns, are bent upon chasing Henry off his supposedly worthless land. Terrified of firearms (this despite the fact that he was a trick-shot artist in vaudeville!), Henry summons up his courage to go to the rescue when his young friend Molly (Virginia Weidler) is placed in danger's path. As a bonus, he solves the murder of his half-brother, who was responsible for Henry "going Arizona" in the first place. Though technically a B picture, this MGM production boasts better production values than most of the "A" efforts from any other studio.
