Baby Peggy was an extremely popular child star who, as a three- and four-year-old, was used like a trained animal in often long-winded comedy shorts. In the remaining amusing fragment, the four-year-old hunts alcohol smugglers in a Canadian Mounty uniform.
Baby Peggy, always cute, is even cuter in this short reel, made over a year ago and just being released. She appears more tiny than ever and her every move is delightful. They have her all dressed up as a Canadian Northwest Policeman and have her chasing a band of mountaineer moonshiners whom she finally does tie up in the very rope with which they lasso her and leads them into headquarters. Don’t let this one pass, because it’s a thoroughly enjoyable short reel. That’s all you need to know.

This is a charming little Baby Peggy comedy that should please the average patron. It is in the nature of a burlesque on stories of the Northwest, with Baby Peggy as a member of the “Mounted” who goes out and captures a desperado. There are several good comedy touches and considerable human interest. Filmed when she was even more diminutive than she is at the present time it shows her to advantage and this is accented by having her work with the giant Jack Ertle. Baby Peggy is a delight in this picture.
