Synopsis:
Keep 'Em Flying:
Everyone's favourite comedic duo are carrying out some of the most hilarious job ever! Blackie and Heathcliff are carnival workers fired from their jobs along with their pal, reckless stunt pilot Jinx Roberts (Dick Foran). When Jinx joins the Army Air Corps to be nearer pretty USO singer Linda Joyce (Carol Bruce) Blackie and Heathcliff loyally join up as well, obtaining low-echelon ground crew jobs. While Jinx tries to cure Linda's brother Jim (Charles Lang) of his fear of flying, Heathcliff pursues a romance with wisecracking waitress Gloria Phelps (Martha Raye), never quite catching on that Gloria has an identical-twin sister....

Ride 'Em Cowboy:
Duke and Willoughby are a couple of rodeo peanut vendors who get mixed up in the travails of western novelist Bob Mitchell (Dick Foran). Ostensibly a true Son of the Frontier, Bob has actually never been west of Brooklyn in his life. To prove that he's got the "right stuff", Bob heads to a dude ranch, where he tries to curry favour with pretty ranch-owner's daughter Anne Shaw (Anne Gwynne). Meanwhile, Duke and Willoughby run afoul of a local Indian tribe, whose chief Jake Rainwater (Douglass Dumbrille) demands that Willoughby marry Jake's porcine daughter (Babe London). The obligatory climactic slapstick chase finds Foran teaming up with authentic westerner Alabama Brewster (Johnny Mack Brown) to foil a gang of modern-day crooks, while Duke and Willoughby do their best to elude Jake and his war-whooping braves.
