Once he was established as a star, light comedian Douglas MacLean began producing his own films. This was one of a string of entertaining, successful pictures. Jimmy Clark (MacLean) and his pal, Algy Baker (Robert Ober), are American tourists traveling through Europe. Jimmy instantly falls in love with another American visitor, Betty Perry (Anne Cornwall), but because he accidentally hands her father (E.J. Ratcliffe) a trick cigar, he gets himself in hot water. Nevertheless he manages to meet Betty, except he is mistaken for J.K. Roberts, famed American mountain climber. The real Roberts (Lee Shumway) allows the ruse to go on, just to teach Jimmy a lesson. Thus Jimmy -- who has never climbed a hill -- is forced to scale the Alps. After many near-death experiences -- including a hilarious encounter with a bear -- Jimmy makes it to the top but then he falls, gathering snow until he becomes a human snowball. Betty gets caught up in the snowball as it rolls down the mountain, creating an avalanche. When the snowball finally comes to a stop at the foot of the mountain, it breaks open to reveal the couple embracing.
