Shy and bespectacled, his wit and ingenuity are not appreciated by his physically robust but none-too-bright father and brothers. When Mary arrives with the traveling road show, Harold needs all his quick wits and courage to defeat the villains, win the girl of his dreams and fi nally gain his father’s approval.
