Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Released in many markets under the simplified title Stork's Nest, this five-reeler from the Columbia division of Metro Pictures was based on a novel by J. Breckinridge Ellis. The film was one of the earliest starring vehicles of Mary Miles Minter, who until the 1922 scandal that destroyed her career was the foremost screen rival of "America's Sweetheart" Mary Pickford. Minter is cast as Emmy Garrett, a gawky, tomboyish young girl of the Delaware mountains. Ignorant in the ways of the world, Emmy falls in love with the first "city man" she sees, wealthy Benton Cabot (Niles Welch). Though his family considers Emmy unworthy of him, Benton marries her anyway -- and, to no one's surprise except the characters on screen, happiness ensues. Emmy of Stork's Nest was filmed on location at the Delaware Water Gap.
