1. Plot summary

A pair of Texas towns are trying to outdo one another in planning a huge fair. While one community has Jimmy Maxwell arranging the entertainment, the other brings in Jo Allen, who uses a ruse to learn about Jimmys plans, pretending to be a school teacher named Judy while her friend Mr. Churchill passes himself off as "Joe" Allen.

After learning that Jimmys decided on a prizefight to draw the crowds, Jo counters by contacting a New York City showman, Caesar Rosero, and attempting to coax him into bringing his entire popular troupe to Texas to perform. By the time Jo regrets fooling Jimmy and begins to develop feelings for him, Jimmy angrily takes counter measures of his own, with Rosero getting caught in between.
