A bored noblewoman wagers that she can steal a valuable diamond necklace and then return it without discovery in this minor programmer from low-budget producer Ralph M. Like. While the Baroness Orsani (Dorothy Revier) contemplates how to reach her goal and win the bet, a gang of jewel thieves also plans to steal the gem. The leader of the gang, Pete Wells (William V. Mong), is at one point close to actually succeeding in his nefarious purpose, but is bested by the baroness, who not only returns the necklace to its rightful owner, Peter Lawton-Bond (Kenneth Harlan), but ends up marrying him. Usually starring his wife Blanche Mehaffey, producer Like this time managed to corral former Columbia star Dorothy Revier, whose mere presence lends a bit of class to this otherwise pedestrian melodrama.
