Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Elisha Cook Jr. made his screen debut in this early exploitation talkie from De Forest Phonofilm. Cook and Pauline Drake appear as innocent lovers who can only stand by and watch while their friend Dorothy Kennedy (Adele Ronson) becomes pregnant by careless Jack Conover (Paul Clare). When Jack refuses to marry her, Dorothy seeks an abortion from the kindhearted Dr. Remington (Harry Davenport), who instead notifies her mother (Frances Underwood). Meanwhile, Jack learns that his domineering aunt (Doris Rankin), is actually his mother and has a complete change of heart, proposing to Dorothy. Produced in New York City, Her Unborn Child also marked the screen debut of venerable Broadway actor Harry Davenport.
