Margaret Mayo's stage hit Baby Mine was a very slight piece, but evidently held out infinite fascinations for filmmakers: no fewer than three movie adaptations were made between 1917 and 1928. In this first version, Madge Kennedy plays a young bride whose husband (Frank Morgan) walks out after a quarrel. Hoping to make him come crawling back, Kennedy pretends to have given birth to a baby. Complications ensue when Morgan returns home, demanding to see his new kid. It would be fun to see Baby Mine again, if only to watch Wizard of Oz Morgan as an athletic young family man.
