Lum (Chester Lauck) courts spinster Geraldine (ZaSu Pitts) in the second installment of the popular Lum and Abner series. The chaste lovebirds fill evenings reading heroic tales of the knights of old. Romance is obvious between the two, however they are both too shy to express their true feelings. At the Jot 'Em Down General Store, an overflowing emporium of odd merchandise, Lum proposes a cockeyed plan to his business partner and best friend Abner (Norris Goff). Lum believes that if they stage several phony emergencies and he is able to rescue Abner in each one of these, his lady love, Geraldine will fall for him for sure, when he finally gets up the gumption to offer his hand in marriage. The plan goes hilariously awry as Lum and Abner's adventures lead them to realize that the truest heroic trait of all is modesty.
