Movie Info

This picture should have been called "What Happened to Mabel?" Mabel Normand's comedy pictures for Goldwyn had slowly been going downhill, and this entry was pretty near the bottom. Mayme Ladd (Normand) leads a drab, lonely life as a shopgirl. One day she goes to a fortune teller, Madame O'Donnelly (Eugenie Besserer), who tells her she is the reincarnation of a Spanish beauty, and if only she can believe that she will find love. So she calls herself Rosa Alvara, dresses up as a Senorita and attends a costume ball on a steamboat. There she meets Dr. Maynard Drew (Hugh Thompson), who she has adored from afar, and he falls for her. She then disappears from the party, and Drew looks all over for her without success. But finally she hurts herself and shows up in his office --this time dressed as a ragged young boy. The couple are reunited, and Drew insists that he loves her for herself. The star and director Victor Schertzinger did what they could with this weak Cinderella story.
