1 hr. 20 min.
Young Marthy "Marky" Jane (Shirley Temple) is left by her father as a makeshift marker for his $20 bet, but when he commits suicide, the little girl finds herself in the custody of his bookie, Sorrowful Jones (Adolphe Menjou). Although ill-equipped to be a parent, Jones is quickly charmed by Marky, who tries to persuade him to leave behind his work at the racetrack with his crooked boss, Big Steve Halloway (Charles Bickford), and settle down with his girlfriend, Bangles Carson (Dorothy Dell).
