Consisting of 15 two-reelers, this series starred Grace Darling in the title role, an "advice to the lovelorn" columnist, who, in each episode, helps her readers with their troubles. Assisting Beatrice is her cub reporter boyfriend Jimmy Barton (Harry Fox), an energetic young man fond of disguises. Filmed in Ithaca, NY, the series featured many then-popular Broadway actors (Fox himself was a well-known stage comic married to one of the Dolly sisters), including musical comedy star Mae Hopkins, and, making her screen debut, famed Ziegfeld girl Olive Thomas. The latter later wed Jack Pickford, but died under mysterious circumstances in Paris in 1920.
