It’s 1954, and the dread disease masculitis has purged the world of men, except for one sad specimen, a rejected suitor (Earle Foxe) who has been living as a hermit since his childhood sweetheart (Derelys Perdue) threw him over. He’s found by Gertie the Gangster (the serial star Grace Cunard) who sells him to the US government for $10 million—though just which state gets him will be decided by a boxing match on the floor of the US Senate.
