Storyline

It is the Lindsay's wedding anniversary and they are fighting. To help them settle down with a house and children, Uncle Matt writes Lord Epping for his help in getting the Lindsay's a war orphan. Unfortunately, he does not state which war and Epping gets one from WWI. The orphan is Fifi who is in her twenties and there is trouble for Uncle Matt and Dennis if their wives find out. So Uncle Matt takes Fifi to the Bide-A-While Inn to hide her, but Miss Pepper believes that something is wrong with this couple with the same last names. Trouble brews when Uncle Matt pretends to be Lord Epping and Fifi's boyfriend Pierre comes looking for her. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

What a babe
19 April 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In this entry in the Mexican Spitfire series, the role of Lupe Velez's husband is now taken by Buddy Rogers. An interesting choice since both Velez and Rogers had seen their real stardom days back in the silent screen era which was now a fading memory.

There's not much plot to this thing. I'm in complete agreement with the reviewer who said that Mexican Spitfire's Baby is just an excuse for a lot of funny people to come on and do their stuff. It's a cinch you'll like the comedy of at least one of these people when the cast includes Lupe Velez, Zasu Pitts, Leon Errol, Fritz Feld, and Tom Kennedy. Five comic players with different humorous characters.

Velez and Rogers now that it's been a year since they're married would like kids and there's a lot of homeless ones due to the war in Europe. So their avuncular patron Leon Errol writes to his buddy in Great Britain, a titled lord also played by Leon Errol for a war orphan.

The titled Errol who is Lord Epping is one of those Colonel Blimp like characters who views the world between shots at his club sends him a war orphan from the First World War. She's grown up to be Marion Martin who was a Jean Harlow copycat in her career. That platinum blonde war orphan sets off problems in the Velez/Rogers marriage as well as the marriages of both characters played by Leon Errol. But none of it would have happened if a certain nosy receptionist at the hotel played by Zasu Pitts didn't start her own investigation into a 'scandal' that could wreck the good name of the respectable hotel that employs her.

Any fan of classic cinema has to like one of the players comic style, so see Mexican Spitfire's Baby.
