Julia (Bessie Love) is a small-town girl who falls in love with George Crum (Frank Elliott) a much-older man. Though the object of her affection regards her as a nuisance, Julia tags after Crum all the way to Chicago. Just when it looks as though Julia's dream romance is about to be consummated, she discovers that her Romeo already has a Juliet-or should we say Mrs. Crum. Disillusioned, Julia returns home, where her faithful boyfriend has been waiting for the girl to wake up and smell the coffee. Based on a novel by Booth Tarkington, Gentle Julia was remade in 1936, with the script reshuffled to put the emphasis on Julia's kid-sister Florence (played in the remake by Jane Withers).
