A Debt-ridden circus is saved by an well-meaning but inept publicity man Caudius B. Bowers (Jimmy Durante)

 Overview    There was one tune of Dick's Larry so detested the ha piont-blank refused to write lyric for. Finally cornered, Larry wrote a lyric to dick's obnoxious melody, inspiration provided by a recent stay at Colligan Stockton Inn in New Jersey, about a small Hotel and the wishing well that make the song a world favorite.
Eventualy the song was re-used in On Your Toes.
