Always worth watching, Emmett Kelly portrays a sad-faced clown who teaches a town to stand up for themselves to secure their own happiness. The people of a small mountain village find laughter through the auspices of Kelly's character and find the strength to rise up against the evil ruler who is oppressing them. A Pied Piper tale that would have fallen flat but for Kelly's sterling personality.
