Cast & Crew
Dave Zirillo is a crooked numerologist and Tommy, his partner, is a pickpocket who finds work guessing people's weight. Dave and Tommy return to Pop's circus after laying low from the authorities. At the circus, Dave and Tommy meet up with their old pal, Stella Cavanaugh, who works as an aerialist. Stella was married to a man whose family did not approve of her, and they divorced shortly after their daughter Elaine was born. Elaine will be returning soon from her boarding school, and Stella is very excited to see the young woman. Before Elaine leaves school, she breaks up with her wealthy boyfriend, Dale Wentworth. Dale tries to persuade Elaine that he is unconcerned about his sister Marjorie's and aunt Beulah's feelings toward her. Nonetheless, Elaine leaves him without saying where she is going. On the day Elaine arrives at the circus, Stella is killed when she falls during her performance. Dave takes it upon himself to care for Elaine. Then, J. C. Eldridge, a shady operator, calls on Dave to set up an astrology shop that will swindle wealthy clients of their money. Dave agrees to the deal and asks Elaine to join him without telling her the truth about the operation. Elaine catches on to the science of astrology quickly, and Dave coaches her to say the things he needs of her. Beulah Johnson, Dale's aunt, is one of Dave's customers, and he and J. C. plan to cheat her out of $250,000 in stocks. One day, as Elaine walks to the beauty shop, she runs into Dale, who is waiting for his friend, Harold, to help him play sleuth. Dale confides to Elaine that he has learned about his aunt's astrologer, Zirillo, and his female assistant, who he knows are out to get his aunt's money. Elaine runs back to Dave's shop, horrified at what she has learned, but before she can confront Dave, Beulah shows up. Dave lies to Beulah about her astrological chart, and she turns her stocks over to him before she leaves. After Beulah is gone, Elaine and Tommy, who has finally found her, confront Dave, and Tommy lifts the stock certificates off Dave without his knowing. Before Elaine and Tommy leave, however, Dale shows up and accuses Elaine of being in on the scam. So that Dale will forget her, Elaine tells him that his accusations are true, and runs out, but Tommy tells Dale that he is wrong and threatens Dale to keep him away from Elaine. Elaine and Tommy then return to the circus, and Dave and J. C. are forced into hiding. Later, Dave tracks the circus down and picks a fight with Tommy. Dave runs when Elaine threatens to call the police, and two circus performers chase after him. Then Dale arrives and apologizes to Elaine for his accusations, and they are reunited.
