Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
A wager forms the basis of this convoluted British drama. The trouble begins when a general bets his son, a novelist, that the lad will be unable to earn 1500 pounds in a year. The young man needs the money so he can marry his girl. Opportunity knocks when some of his father's jewels are stolen. The lad's friend, an advice columnist, suggests that the general offer a 1500 pound reward for the stones. She then helps the son capture the thieves, earn the reward, and win the bet.
