A pickle salesman finds himself in the middle of a South American revolution, impersonating a rebel general and falling for the general's daughter.
Johnny Hines material is extremely difficult to find, his films are fast-moving comedies with formulaic plots and plenty of gags that come out of nowhere to keep the viewer entertained. This one has a lot of hilarious sight gads.
