The plot to this comedy is so dog-eared that only luminaries like star Dorothy Gish and director F. Richard Jones could have made it as lively as it turned out to be. Delsie O'Dell (Gish) is a poor girl who shows up unannounced on the doorstep of her wealthy aunt and uncle, her pet bulldog and parrot in tow. When a seventy-five thousand dollar necklace is stolen, Delsie is determined to track down the guilty parties. She finds them in a deserted, old house that is supposedly haunted, so she sneaks in and plays "ghost" herself, scaring the bejeezus out of the crooks. She gets the necklace back, along with winning the hero (William E. Park).
