On its release, it was shown with the Toto (Armando Novello) comedy short The Furniture Movers.
As described in film magazines, left in charge of a large manufacturing business in Manhattan's Lower East Side through the death of his father, Hugh Travers, Jr. (Fisher) is confronted by considerable unrest among the employees due to the socialist doctrines preached by Ivan Marask (Sarno). Disguising himself as a poor factory worker, he labors in his own mill and thus becomes interested in Nicholas Marinoff (Dowling), a socialist writer, and his niece Celeste Janvier (Love). Discharged for inciting the workers to violence, Marask determines to kill Travers. He tells Celeste of his intention and they both arrive at the Travers home at the same time. The young woman spoils his aim so the shot meant for Travers goes wild. Marask is astonished to discover that the man he knew as Hughes is Travers, and his astonishment is shared by Celeste. Travers tells them of his planned reforms for the employees and of his love for Celeste.

A Little Sister of Everybody was filmed at Paralta Studio in Los Angeles.
The film received mixed reviews.
Like many American films of the time, A Little Sister of Everybody was subject to cuts by city and state film censorship boards. For example, the Chicago Board of Censors cut, in Reel 4, the intertitle "I'll kill his dog, Hugh Travers, as a warning".
