Vivian Tobin and Paul Fix live at the Waldorf with their baby boy. They would be happy, except he doesn't work, and his money comes from his disagreeable mother, Sarah Edwards, from a trust fund for him left by his father. She dislikes Miss Tobin because she was in show business and wants Fix to divorce his wife, or no more money. When the couple is out on the town, Harold Huber, an old admirer of Miss Tobin, picks a fight and kills Fix. Miss Edwards takes the baby away. Miss Tobin winds up in a day-and-sleeping nursery school. There she is courted by Russell Hopton, the father of one of her students, Cora Sue Collins.
It's an involved set-up and one of those too sentimental plots that make sense if you assume that there are only twenty or thirty people in the world, especially when you see how the baby, grown into Dickie Moore, comes back into Miss Tobin's life without her knowing it. The movie is very cheaply made and shows it. Charles Lamont, usually an expert at stretching a budget, can't do much here, where the actors seem to declaim rather than speak their lines. Besides the cast already named, seasoned actors such as Mary Carr, Bryant Washburn and Lloyd Ingraham seem awfully anxious to speak their lines, collect their checks, and go home.
