Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Finders Keepers is based on a lighthearted story by mystery specialist Mary Roberts Rinehardt. Laura LaPlante stars as Barbara, the flighty daughter of army colonel Archibald (Edmund Breese). Upon falling in love with Carter (John Harron), one of the men under her father's command, Barbara decides to "crash" the army camp and marry the boy, with the chaplain (Joe Mack) presiding. Accordingly, our heroine disguises herself as a boy and sneaks into Carter's barracks. She is forced to keep up the masquerade when a reviewing officer suddenly shows up for a surprise inspection, leading to all sorts of risque complications. Not exactly the subtlest comedy film of 1928, Finders Keepers proved to be a real crowd pleaser, reducing even sophisticated New York audiences to peals of helpless laughter.
