Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Age could not wither the waiflike beauty of Marguerite Clark, which is why she continued playing Mary Pickford-style roles even as she approached forty. In Molly Make Believe, Clark plays the title character, a "Cinderella" type who vows to save her family home from foreclosure. With the help of her brother, Molly travels to the Big City in a dog cage so as to avoid paying train fare. An accident en route brings our heroine in contact with handsome railroad official Carl Stanton (Mahlon Hamilton), and it is hard to figure out how this association will end up. Molly Make Believe was based on a story by Eleanor Howell Abbott.
