Oklahoma mechanic Pike Peters finds himself part-owner of an oil field. His wife Idy, hitherto content, decides the family must go to Paris to get “culture” and meet “the right kind of people.” Pike, his grown son, and daughter, soon have flirtatious French admirers; Idy rents a chateau from an impoverished aristocrat; while Pike responds to each new development with homespun wit. In the inevitable clash, will pretentiousness and sophistication or common sense triumph?
