Description by OLDIES.com:

The laughs come a mile a minute when a trio of Southern California gals decide to "do their part" for Uncle Sam - and earn a few bucks - by working as truckers during WWII.

When Terry Olsen inherits a ten-ton truck, she and friends Pert and Marie plan to make a living hauling freight. Their first customer is a gambler with gaming equipment bound for Las Vegas. Now the gals are being trailed cross-country by rival gangsters out to hijack the equipment, and by finance company reps trying to repossess the truck. Additional craziness is provided by a succession of passengers, among them a crystal gazer, a runaway rich girl and a bejeweled, aristocratic amnesiac who thinks the back of the truck is her drawing room. The end of the road for all these screwball characters is a Nevada courtroom and a trial with a wild climactic twist.

Poverty Row craftsman Edgar G. Ulmer co-wrote this film's story two years before directing the classic film noir, Detour.
