The story centers around a scientist named Gerald Clifton, played by Stanley Holloway, who is trying to invent a machine that can predict people's behavior based on their astrological sign. He becomes frustrated with his current girlfriend, whom the machine predicts is not a good match for him, so he sets out to find the perfect woman according to his machine's readings.

Enter Peggy, played by Patricia Roc, a young woman who happens to fit all of the characteristics that Gerald's machine has deemed perfect. However, Peggy soon learns of Gerald's intentions and decides to turn the tables on him. With the help of her roommate, Peggy sets out to teach Gerald a lesson, with unexpected results.
