Sidney Melbourne (aka The Lemon Drop Kid), is a con man who offers a friendly sure thing horse tip to the girlfriend of mobster Moose Moran. But when his sure thing loses, Sidney is given until Christmas to pay back the money or else. To raise the money he owes, Sidney enlists some old pals to hit the street corners of New York dressed as Santa Claus accepting donations for a bogus elderly ladies home.
