Synopsis:
After the death of her father, Dimples, played by Mary Miles Minter, takes up residence at her aunt's boardinghouse. In short order, love is in the air after she meets Robert Stanley, a wealthy young man who was staying at the boardinghouse to forget a broken engagement.

While planning to marry, a stock market panic threatens to ruin Robert. Dimples uses the inheritance from her father, which has been safely tucked away in her doll since early in the film, to save her handsome beau from disaster. Thus, the romance, and a happy ending, can continue.
