Stage star Wallace Eddinger stars in this mediocre romantic comedy. It opens with a flirtation on board a ship between Robert Pitt (Eddinger) and Molly Creedon (Carol Holloway), the daughter of police commissioner "Big Phil" Creedon (Frederick Montague). Pitt never finds out Molly's name, and later on, during a dinner with his pals (Frederick Vroom, Frances Tyler and Monroe Salisbury), he wagers that anyone can burglarize a house, and that he will do it himself in a week's time. Before he gets his chance, though, his own home is invaded by a thief, and the two wind up in a partnership. The house they break into happens to belong to the police commissioner and Molly catches them. They meet her once again at a house party, and when the thief compulsively steals a necklace, both he and Pitt are arrested. Once again, Molly comes to the rescue and saves the hapless Pitt from jail.
