Peggy Donovan (Joyce Reynolds) inherits a tidy sum of ill-gotten gains from her gambler father. Fearing that her late father's partner means to do her harm to claim the money for himself, Peggy takes the loot and hides out in an exclusive girl's school. Here she decides that her money would be put to better use by donating it to the school's faculty. Ultimately, everyone does the "right thing," and Peggy finds lasting happiness in the arms of poor-but-honest gas jockey Barry Shepard (Ross Ford). The film's best lines go to Laura Elliot as a snotty student: Elliot went on to play the bespectacled murder victim of Robert Walker in Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train (1951).
