Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Socialites Ethel Clayton and Charles Meredith think only of themselves. When they become bored with one another, Clayton and Meredith divorce and marry others (several times). The person who suffers most from their cavalier outlook on life is their cute little daughter Mary Jane Irving. Only when the girl suffers one of those convenient movie illnesses do Claytonand Meredith wise up. The Cradle is an Americanized adaptation of Eugene Brieaux's stage play Le Berceau.
