Ben Hendricks Jr. wishes to keep sponging off his social-climbing aunt by convincing her that Pangborn is an Indian potentate, whose presence in her household will lend her social prestige.

This material is eked out by a love story for Pangborn, who has been searching for the aptly-named Elinor Fair, who is Hendricks’s sister.  There are also two sets of cross-dressing sequences, one involving Pangborn, Hendricks and a bevy of young girls at a gym, including Babe London, and one involving Pangborn dressing up exactly like Hendricks’s aunt, being proposed to her by a nearsighted lawyer/suitor, and doing a bit of the mirror gag that is best known nowadays from the Marx BrothersDuck Soup ’.
