Mary is stage struck and will not marry until she makes it in show business. Her fiance is distraught that they might never marry. The actors of the local stage company go on strike, leaving management with nobody to fill all the roles.

  • Background

    Moore went to work with Al Christie to develop her comedy skills. Prior to her work with Christie, she was strictly a dramatic actress. In her autobiography Silent Star, she said she had read a quote that the greatest dramatic actresses had gotten their starts in comedy.

    The film, a two-reel short, played with several other longer features at the various other venues where it was exhibited, such as with Anne of Green Gables, a Mary Miles Minter film, and with Cosmo Hamilton's The Miracle of Love at the Rivoli Rialto Theater in New York.
