Love as Peggy Gordon

When the poor Gordon family must move out of its house and into a small cottage, young Peggy Gordon (Love) becomes a gardener to earn money. Her wealthy neighbor falls in love her, after seeing her "over the garden wall" and through a tennis racket; but she mistakenly believes that he is a chauffeur. When her younger sister attempts to elope with a bad man, Peggy and her new beau successfully prevent this from happening, and her beau's wealthy identity is revealed.[2][7]



The film was generally well-received.[8]
