Mary Miles Minter, moviedom's chief rival to Mary Pickford, stars in Dimples. Mary plays the daughter of miserly William Cowper, who hides his bankroll in his daughter's doll. This over-emphasized plot point figures prominently in the film's climax, wherein Mary's boyfriend Thomas J. Carrigan is threatened with financial ruin. Six years after the release of Dimples, Mary Miles Minter's career would be inexorably destroyed by her alleged involvement in the murder of director William Desmond Taylor. She spent the remainder of her life in her decaying Hollywood mansion, subsisting on her business investments and broken dreams.
