In the Wild West, Charley (Dan Blocker), a blacksmith, is a nice man but not the smartest in his little town. And when his quest for a mail-order bride is fruitless, he's embarrassed and threatens to ditch. But since he's the only blacksmith around, the people decide to hatch a plan to keep Charley around. Eventually, they pay local saloon girl Sadie (Nanette Fabray) to pose as the missing bride. But complications ensue as Charley begins to fall in love with Sadie.
