SYNOPSIS

Georgiana is curious when she overhears Betty Summers plan to run away from her husband for the weekend with Bob McNear. She is even more interested when she learns that Betty was the woman who stole her husband, Ralph Summers. Planning a little revenge, she invites Ralph to visit her the next day at her Aunt Julia's cabin in the mountains near Santa Barbara. She obtains the licence plate numbers of both Bob's and Betty's cars and leaves them with the attendants at a gas station near the cabin. When they see Bob's car, the attendants claim they are out of gas and send Bob and Betty to Georgiana's cabin. Because she wants them to be there when Ralph arrives, she announces that her gas is locked up until morning and they will have to stay the night. Things become even more complicated when another couple, Lawrence and Connie Thurston, arrive in Betty's car. They are jewel thieves and have stolen Betty's car for their getaway. When Georgiana recognizes the car, Connie pretends to be the second Mrs. Summers. Lawrence hides the jewels in Aunt Julia's bedroom. When she finds them, Georgiana realizes who Lawrence and Connie are. The next day, as she tries to keep the jewels from the thieves, Georgiana spends a lot of time talking with Bob, and he asks her to marry him. She refuses, claiming that she is still in love with Ralph and intends to get him back. Meanwhile Ralph, and his brother Arthur arrive at the cabin and Lawrence locks them up.

Realizing that she is in love with Bob, Georgiana no longer wants revenge on Betty and invents a story that will convince Ralph that Betty did nothing wrong. With the way cleared, Georgiana and Bob get married. +
