Philip Verrill Mighel's Bruvver Jim's Baby, about a shiftless gold miner whose life changes with the discovery of an abandoned baby, was made into a fine silent Western starring the dependable Harry Carey. There is a villain (Charles Brinley), who's after Carey's gold, and a nice postmistress (Carol Holloway), who is willing to become both wife and mother. Universal surrounded their veteran Western star with a fine supporting cast in this film, including former serial queen Holloway as the post mistress, rotund comedy actor George Bunny, and one Minnie Prevost, a Native American supporting player who, billed as "Minnie Ha Ha", had made an indelible impression in Mabel Normand's Mickey (1919).
