Nineteen-year-old Ella Hall played the adolescent heroine of The Love Girl. Upon the death of her parents, Ambrosia (Hall) is transplanted from the country to the city, where she is put under the care of her unfeeling Aunt (Adele Farrington). What follows is a standard "Cinderella" situation, with the aunt lavishing all her affection on her own daughter (Betty Schade), while treating Ambrosia like a drudge. The Status Quo changes radically when our heroine rescues her snotty cousin from a kidnapping, masterminded by a phony Swami (Wadsworth Harris). Harry Depp, an actor best known for his female impersonations, played a straight role (so to speak) as the cousin's boyfriend.
