Popular silent-movie child star Baby Marie Osborne is the Cupid by Proxy in this frolicksome 5-reeler. Baby Marie's older sister Mildred Harris is in love with boy-next-door Antrim Short, but their social climbing parents will have none of this union. It's up to Baby Marie to set things right in her usual little-miss-fixit fashion. Audiences knew exactly what to expect from the opening titles, but familiarity seldom bred contempt in Ms. Osborne's vehicles. In 1936, Mildred Harris and Antrim Short would be reunited, after a fashion, as supporting players in the Three Stooges 2-reeler Movie Maniacs.
