Dorothy Gish stars as a superstitious young miss in this silly farce comedy. Frances Wadsworth (Gish) keeps her eyes on the stars, her hands on the cards, and a rabbit's foot in her pocket. She encourages her friend to elope because "Venus is on the ascendant" and then discovers that there is a light-haired young man in her own future. The man, Malcolm Dale (Ralph Graves), is the best man at her friend's wedding, but Frances balks when he proposes to her on Friday the 13th. The news is even worse when Frances also divines the presence of a dark-haired rival for her blond man's affections. The young lady is Sally Smith (Emily Chichester), daughter of Rockaway Smith (George Fawcett), a Western millionaire who Dale is forced to squire around town. But Frances is reunited with Dale when she spends the night at her friend's home. Burglars break in, as does Dale. The crooks blackjack the lovers into unconsciousness, and it apparently knocks some sense into them because when they come to, they reconcile.
