The leaves of the Calendar begin to fall rapidly when avaricious Wenda (Greta Gynt) jilts newly-impoverished horse owner Garry (John McCallum). Wenda then weds Willie (Raymond Lovell), the brother of Garry's former horse-trainer Molly (Sonia Holm). While drowning his sorrows in liquor, Garry joins in on a scheme to steal his own prize horse just before a big race, thereby increasing the odds in another big race. Successfully robbing himself, Garry recoups his fortune and marries Molly, leaving Wenda and Willie back at the starting gate. Calendar is based on a play by mystery specialist Edgar Wallace, which was previously filmed as Bachelor's Folly in 1932.
