Baby Mine ( 1928 ) - Lost ?
13 August 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is my ambition to add as many silent film synopsis of films that have a survival status of unknown or presumed lost. I try to do as much research as I can and it is not my intention to deceive anyone, for sometimes the film does exist. I am more than delighted if someone has knowledge of a film listed as lost but survives, as I wish all silent films did survive. I hope the reader enjoys this brief synopsis.

Tricked into marrying a big, ungainly girl, Oswald Hardy ( Karl Dane ), a student chiropractor, leaves his new wife, Emma ( Charlotte Greenwood ), the following morning. A year later Oswald returns, summoned by the news of an addition to the family. A musical chairs sequence involving three babies and a cigar-smoking midget dressed in swaddling clothes suggests to Oswald that he has been tricked again, but he forgives his wife and friends and decides to stay home for a while.

MOTION PICTURE MAGAZINE - April, 1928- Charlotte Greenwood has come to the screen, and although it isn't quite enough for her, she and Karl Dane have put on the most uproarious love scene, if you can call it that, that has ever been performed. This can't be described -- you just have to see it. And if you don't like it, don't tell me. In justice to the rest of the picture, it must be said that quite a lot of people laughed heartily when Karl Dane took his osteopathy exam, and when George K. Arthur sat down in a juicy pie, and when the midget drank gin out of a nursing bottle. You know the story is about a wife who tries to get back her straying husband by writing him that she has a baby, though she's quite childless. And then there are suddenly dozens of babies, and it's very embarrassing. But all you have to bother about is the big scene with Charlotte Greenwood. - MOTION PICTURE MAGAZINE ...
