Cast & Crew
W. T. Carleton
Every night, Madge Dow of the Middleport Orphanage, imagines herself in the lighted room in the house across the way, being tucked into bed by a beautiful mother. After Madge and her friend Spotty escape to visit settlement worker Letty Thompson, and Letty encourages them to investigate the house, they find a grumpy, gout-ridden old Major there, still irritated over his daughter's marriage years ago without his consent. After the Major explodes when Spotty raids the jam jars, Madge takes the Major for a wheel-chair ride, but loses control on a hill and runs away, leaving the Major soaked in a storm. Fortunately, Dick Washburn, a physician engaged to Letty, rescues the Major and cures his gout. Because Dick does not know his parentage, Letty's mother will not allow their marriage. When Madge endears herself to the Major, however, he reveals that Dick is his grandson. When Dick and Letty marry, Madge lives with them in the Major's home.
