Likeable Douglas MacLean breezes his way through the tailor-made vehicle That's My Baby. Jilted on his wedding day, Alan Boyd (MacLean) vows never to get involved with a woman ever again. But a promise to oneself is the easiest kind to break, as Boyd discovers when he falls in love with Helen Raynor (Margaret Morris), his boss' daughter. The lion's share of the footage concerns the hero's misadventures when a baby is entrusted to his care. The tot causes no end of trouble for Boyd, culminating in a Harold Lloyd-like sequence in which our hero tries to rescue the kid from the wing of an airplane in flight. Rather than endanger a real baby in this sequence, the producers secured the services of midget-actor Harry Earles, best known for his work in Tod Browning's The Unholy Three and Freaks.
