Dwight Tilton's novel Miss Petticoats was visualized on-screen by director Harley Knoles, a British expatriate briefly working at World's New Jersey studios. Alice Brady played the titular heroine, whose real name is Agatha. The film's storyline accommodated a rich variety of contrasting types, ranging from a wealthy matriarch, to a capricious minister, to a humble mill worker, to a salty sailor. "Miss Petticoats" takes her sweet time but eventually chooses the "right" man from a crowd of candidates. Reportedly, the film was an improvement over the stage version of Tilton's novel.
