In one of their several gentle comedies, early screen stars Harold Lockwood and Dorothy Davenport are newly engaged when he discovers an abandoned baby in the back of his car. The little one-reel comedy was directed by British actor/playwright Thomas Ricketts, whose wife, Josephine, appeared in a supporting role. Dorothy Davenport was the wife of Wallace Reid, a handsome, blond matinee idol whose drug-related death at 31 became one of Hollywood's earliest scandals.
