Plot summaryEdit

Budding child vaudeville performer Foxine LaRue (Edith Fellows) and her mother Gertrude LaRue (Margaret Irving) will do anything to get Foxine into show business. Together, they stage a kidnapping hoax. Foxine is nowhere to be found, having hitched a ride on a freight train after mailing a ransom note. Overheard talking about the hoax, Gertrude is arrested by the police. Pascual Orozco (Leo Carrillo) finds Foxine, and she tells him she escaped from an orphanage. He tries to drive her back to the orphanage, but she steals his car. Orozco is also arrested for the kidnapping. A mob tries to hang Orozco, and Foxine finally confesses.[1]
