Jack Griffith (Jackie Gleason) is a wealthy, lovable alcoholic whose wife Amberlyn (Glynis Johns) can't handle any more of his pranks. When their daughter Augusta (Laurel Goodwin) wanted the pony she saw in the circus parade, Jack bought her the entire circus. That was the final straw for Amberlyn who flees to her father's (Charles Ruggles) home in Texarkana. Jack, of course, follows in hot pursuit. This film won the Academy Award for Best Song: "Call Me Irresponsible."
