Plot

Charlie Rodgers is a coffee house singer who has just been fired after a scuffle with some arrogant college kids. After he is bailed out, he begins to roam the country for another singing gig. When Joe Lean runs him off the road, he manages to destroy Charlie's motorcyle and guitar. That is when Maggie Morgan offers him a job as a roustabout in her traveling carnival (which Joe and his daughter Cathy work for as well) until his bike and guitar are repaired. Maggie notices Charlie's talent for signing, and makes him the feature attraction of the carnival. The crowds start packing in to watch Charlie, but it also catches the eye of rival carnival owner Harry Carver, who would like nothing more to kill off Maggie's business.
