Mary is looking after a young child whose parents have little time for her. So, when Mary travels home to meet her childhood sweetheart, she takes the child with her. Meanwhile, her boyfriend has a mishap on the road, and is tricked out of his money by a tramp. When the tramp then hitches a ride on a train, the boyfriend does so as well. At the station, he meets Mary and the child, and they plan to re-board the train together. But difficulties arise when Mary sees her boss boarding the same train - and there is also the problem that her boyfriend doesn't have a ticket. Written by
Nothing great in this 3-reel comedy from Harold Lloyd. He would use much of this material later in his career and to better effect. The sets are crude and the storyline choppy. Mildred Davis (the girl) disappears for much of the film, and Anna May Bilson (as the little girl--not a boy as stated in the plot summary here) is not very photogenic. Some good comedy bits, but nothing great. And yes, Mildred Davis would become Lloyd's wife soon after this film was completed.
