The Floor Below reunited comedienne Mabel Normand with one of her former Keystone colleagues, director Clarence Badger. "Our Mabel" was cast as Patricia O'Rourke, a trouble-prone copygirl for a big-city newspaper. In danger of losing her job, Patricia tries to get a "big scoop" by investigated a baffling series of robberies. This brings her into close proximity with Hunter Mason (Tom Moore), whom Patricia assumes is a burglar. Actually, Hunter is one of the wealthiest young bachelors in town -- and once Patricia has rounded up the crooks, she manages to land Hunter as her husband. Unfortunately, only one of Mabel Normand's sixteen features for producer Samuel Goldwyn has survived -- and The Floor Below isn't that one.
