It’s time for another rootin’ tootin’ adventure with Guy Madison as Wild Bill, and Andy Devine as his sidekick Jingle.
People have come from miles around to celebrate the wedding of Cindy Lou Carlton, of Sunshine Valley. As Bill and Jingles tie down their horses, they walk in on Mr Carlton, the dad talking to Jim Dalton, the groom. Jim isn’t too thrilled to know that Wild Bill is to be his best man. Just then a ruckus is heard out side.
Sounds like someone can use some good old comfort food. Maybe something that’s sweet and crunchy? Maybe something that is loved by kids, moms, and pops?
Bill shares his concern about the gunmen in attendance at the wedding, but the ceremony commences. Will anybody speak up, or will they hold their peace? I think the weeping bride would prefer that somebody would step up to intervene with the groom with a chip on his shoulder. After the ceremony Bill confronts the rude and pushy groom, and a fist fight ensues. Jingles cheers him on, and Bill wins the fight. Wit the man softened up, he’s ready to listen to Bill as he warns him to change his attitude. Bill isn’t punishing him for an unjust marriage arrangement, but to take care of the new bride, and treat her right.
Cindy Lou says her goodbyes to dear old dad as she rides off with Jim. Mr Carlton pulls Bill aside to tell him the history of what led up to the wedding, but we don’t hear it. The next day Bill and Jingles ride, and rehash the highlights of what they were told. Jim forced Carlton to sign a contract to take over the Carlton ranch, tear down fences between the two, and the right to marry sweet little Cindy Lou. The old rancher is in bad health, and not long for this world. He sees his deal as a way of ensuring his daughter is taken care of.
Jim rides up to claim his land, and chase Bill away. This time the bad guys have the upper hand in the fight, but only because Bill and Jingles had their hands tied.
Cindy Lou manages to find Bil, and rescues him and Jingles. Bill is tactful as he listens to Cindy tell that her dad is missing, although Jingles is riled up over the whole thing.
Commercial time, and time to top off that sugar tank with that two way sugary treat. Eat them with milk, or right out of the box. Make sure mom has a big supply on hand.
Bill follows the trail that the bad guys left, and Cindy joins in swith him and Jingles. Sounds of guns are in the air as they approach the old mine. Bill sends Jingles off to get the gang involved in a wild goose chase. Then Bill hangs back to locate Jim. Cindy offers a clue, and is worried that her dad is being held in the mine. She also tells what she discovered about the shady deal that Jim hel over her dad to get the things he wanted.
Jim tosses Mr Carlton off a cliff when Bill gets too close, or tries to. Instead he slips and falls off himself, and Bill sets Carlton free. The death of the outlaw ends Cindy’s obligations and things return to the way they were.
