Freed for lack of evidence, Dan returns home to find attractive, scantily clad Crazy Hollister there. Her stepfather John Ed owns a half-million-acre property nearby. Crazy is upset that John Ed has blocked her inheritance and may have even murdered her mother.

Sheila shows up and believes she has caught Dan having an affair, but Crazy convinces her thats not true. Meanwhile, county recorder Snagby tries to blackmail John Ed with information Mary Little Cloud gave him, but John Eds evil henchman Reese has him killed. Sheriff Riley once again thinks Dan is responsible.

The Bartletts are taken captive by Reese and sealed inside a cave. There they renew their love. Riley is able to free them while Crazy finds proof that Mary Little Cloud had a document showing her tribe to be the lawful owner of John Eds land. Reese is betrayed by John Ed, who ultimately learns that crime doesnt pay. Dan and Sheila cant wait to get back to their old lives.

    Like most of Bob Hopes later movie efforts, Cancel My Reservation was not a success at the box office and was panned by critics. Hope and his wife Dolores attended the films premiere at Radio City Music Hall in New York City (incidentally during a strike by the Musicians Union, which prevented the band or the Rockettes from performing) and he reputedly bemoaned that he was getting too old to play a leading man and therefore would not make another feature film.
