Shoe salesman Harry Witherspoon is stuck in a rut until, one day, he discovers he is to inherit his uncle's fortune; but, there is a catch. To claim the inheritance Harry has to take his uncle's body around the French Rivera for one last adventure! Chasing him for the same fortune are a dog lover from Brooklyn, a short-sighted Mafia Boss' wife, and an optometrist. Add to that a host of other zany characters and you've got the recipe for a mad cap evening.
