Manly Earle Williams was still very much a box-office draw when he made this entertaining adventure film. Bob Bellamy (Williams) is the spendthrift son of a tycoon (Melbourne MacDowell). When the elder Bellamy gets fed up with Bob's idle ways, he forces him to go to work on his cargo ship. While playing poker with one of the sailors, Bob wins a purebred cat wearing a gem-encrusted bracelet as a collar. He doesn't realize that the stones are real diamonds, or that the cat has run away from its wealthy family. When the ship lands at a Mexican port, Bob falls in love with Consuela Velasco (Beatrice Burnham), the daughter of a collector (Hector Sarno). Bob and his sailor friends rescue Consuela from a scheming fiancé and when they arrive in San Francisco, they discover that there is a big reward for the return of the cat and the bracelet. Bob proves his resourcefulness to his father and is welcomed back into the family.
