Julanne Johnston, Doug Fairbanks' gorgeous vis-a-vis in The Thief of Bagdad, essays the title character in Dame Chance. Johnston is cast as impoverished actress Gail Vernon, who is sponsored into Broadway stardom by wealthy art patron Lloyd Mason (Robert Frazer). At first, Gail is convinced that Lloyd merely wants "certain favors," but soon she is won over by his gallantry and sincerity. Alas, any romance between Gail and Lloyd is impossible; after all, the man is still married, and his wife loves him just as much as Gail does. Conveniently, however, Mrs. Mason expires from an unspecified illness in the final reel, freeing Lloyd to wed his beloved Gail.
