Storyline

Celeste Moissant, the young widow of a victim of the European war, moves into the boarding house where Bobby Walton lives on the floor above. On Christmas Eve, Celeste undresses Fanchon, her little daughter, tells her tales of Santa Claus, and together they hang up the child's stocking, then write out her choice of Christmas presents on slips of paper and send them up the chimney. Celeste puts the child to bed and leaves her to dream of Santa Claus and toys, while she hurries to the Pink Rat Café, where she sings. Bobby receives a letter containing the pleasant news that he has been left a fortune, and enclosing a substantial check in advance. Returning from cashing it, he meets Fanchon in the hall, and the child asks him if he is Santa Claus. Bobby carries her back to bed, and touched by her innocent prattle, goes out again and buys her all the toys he can carry. Passing the Pink Rat Café, he meets two friends who drag him in, toys and all. It proves fortunate for Celeste, for Bobby ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A happy inspiration
24 June 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A special in two parts, introducing an unexpected Santa Clans, who really did not know why, only that he had the opportunity and through the fullness of his heart, because he was especially favored, made the merriest Christmas for a little girl and her mother that they had ever experienced. Mr. William Addison Lathrop had a happy inspiration when he wrote this Christmas picture and Mr. George Ridgewell, director, made of it a beautiful offering. It is a pretentious picture with a large cast, but credit is due to Lillian Herbert, Audrey Berry and Arthur H. Ashley, principals, for splendid work. A compelling picture. - The Moving Picture World, January 2, 1915
