Little Annie Rooney

Mary Pickford is again a smudgy-faced gamin of the streets. She's dirty-hands, dirty-face and all that sort of thing. It is a New York story. A story of that New York which lies south of Fourteenth Street and east of 'Thoid' avenoo in the day when the Irish ruled the section. The story is of the two children of Rooney, the cop. Mary is the daughter, who is about 12, and her brother is around 18 or so. The kids of the neighborhood taunt Mary with 'Little Annie Rooney is My Sweetheart' and she starts a battle, part of the gang being lined up with her and part against her. Abie has to stay home and can't fight 'cause it's a holiday, but when the battle gets too hot you can't keep Abie out and he goes to Annie's aid. It is great kids' stuff and the dirctor makes the most of his chances.
