Zoe Rae was a child star of the silent era -- not as popular as Baby Marie Osborne, but still good box office. Here she does what she (and just about every child star, sound and silent) did best -- charm the heck out of a crotchety millionaire. Tom Paulton (William Carroll) is working for mean broker Matthew Wedgestone (Charles Mailes). Not only is Paulton underappreciated at the firm, but his wife is crippled from an accident and in dire need of an operation they can't afford. However, their little girl (Zoe, of course) has a fan in Wedgestone and gets to spend time at his home. This comes in handy when the broker's manager (True Boardman) and a doctor scheme to ruin him. They have Wedgestone's house quarantined so that he can't execute any of the deals he had planned to make. But Zoe saves the day by sneaking out of the house with a message giving her father power of attorney to carry out Wedgestone's instructions.
