    Gold Rush-era San Francisco business tycoon, Joshua Norton, abruptly looses his fortune. He disappears from society only to resurface years later, adorned in elaborate, ragtag military uniforms and proclaims himself "Joshua Norton I - The Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico." Rather than commit him to an institution, the citizens of San Francisco fondly embrace the eccentric - newspapers print his "proclamations"; merchants honor his self-issued money; and a "royal box" is even afforded the Emperor and his two dogs at the San Francisco Opera. Despite the town's somewhat tongue-in-cheek acknowledgement of his imperial status, Norton, takes his civic responsibilities in earnest and becomes a beloved and valuable (ruling) citizen of San Francisco. Upon his death, the citizens honor Norton with a state-scale funeral attended by a reported 10,000-30,000 mourners! A story of a shattered life redeemed, all because San Francisco opened its doors and hearts and made room for someone a little different. (Synopsis from "Death Valley Days" official site)moreless

    Bill comes into money after selling his gold claim to a business syndicate. Flush with cash, he invites his long-lost relatives to town for an extravagant family reunion.

The grifters learn a lesson from Bill who treats them each as though they were legitimate family.
