In spite of its patriotic title, this Baby Marie Osborne picture really has nothing to do with World War I. It involves a child-size mechanical doll received by seamstress Hilda Best (Alice Saunders). She's been given the task of dressing it as a nurse for a Red Cross bazaar. When she has to go out, she leaves it in the care of her niece Dolly (Baby Marie). But the neighborhood kiddies find out about the doll and wrestle it away from her. It meets an untimely end, so Dolly takes its place and is auctioned off at the bazaar. She winds up at the home of a wealthy society matron with a crippled daughter. The house is robbed that night, and the crooks kidnap Dolly, who has surprised them. But she gets away and fetches the police. Dolly gets a reward for her efforts and she promises lifelong friendship to the crippled girl.
