Synopsis:
A department store owner has the von Emmelman castle shipped to the United States, and decides to dis-inherit both of his sons, not only from ownership of the castle, but of the estate as well...unless they mend their ways! The pair decide to do something to change their father's mind...but Mr. Turner is killed by a runaway car and the boys announce that the castle will not open as scheduled, disappointing both Rickie and Connie. The Heap enters the castle and a free-for-all begins, with the death of Paul and the true villain: Mr. Turner's attorney.
