Lizbeth Ann Palmer (Bebe Daniels) is the daughter of a Los Angeles millionaire who is traveling to New York to visit her aunt. On their arrival, she and her chaperone dine at a restaurant and Lizbeth Ann discovers that after she pays the bill she will have less than a dollar left. She makes a bet with the chaperone that she will be able to last out the week on just 75 cents and sets out to prove it. After an unsuccessful attempt to be a flower girl almost ends in her arrest, she catches the attention of Tod Rollins, a wealthy young man (Harry Myers). He convinces his mother (Frances Raymond) to take Lizbeth home with them, but along the way, they just happen to stop at her aunt's home. There, Lizbeth finds someone wearing her clothes and pretending to be her. It's Susie (Helen Jerome Eddy), the associate of Meadows the butler (Sidney Bracey) -- they're both crooks out to get their hands on some of the Palmer fortune. Lizbeth has fun going along with it all and helping the crooks along, until she gets the opportunity to expose them. At the end of the week, she has won her bet and won Rollins. This comedy seems like it would be tailor-made for Bebe Daniels, but she doesn't quite get the same opportunity to glow as she did in some of her other pictures.
