Mrs. Hookworm and her mean little son, Sturgeon, run a
theatrical boarding house out West where Bill E. Goat and
his company of traveling performers are stranded. Mrs.
Hookworm has locked them out of their rooms and seized
their luggage. Enter the villain, Slicker Pinsetter, who
knows the lovely Mary Delightful has a trunk containing
some of her late father’s plays. Unbeknownst to the
others, a revival of one of her father’s plays is a
current hit in London. Mrs. Hookworm and Slicker compete
in gleeful greed to see who will get the trunk. But they
do not plan on the appearance of our hero, Chester, the
cowboy who foils the pair of villains.
