In this comic mystery film, bumbling, small-town typesetter Luther Heggs tries to solve a murder so he can prove he has what it takes to become a reporter. Luther thinks he's seen a ghost in a house where a killing has taken place. However, when he writes an article about what he's seen for his newspaper, nobody will believe him. So, to prove he's telling the truth, Luther spends a night in the "haunted house." But will the would-be reporter stay alive long enough to get to the bottom of this mystery? And will he be able to win over Alma, the girl he's crazy about, in the process?
