Cast & Crew
Ma Quail robs the till in her husband's drugstore in order to finance singing and dancing lessons for her daughter, Sally, who, even as a kidlet of 8, is a clever impersonator. Years pass, and domineering, ambitious Ma Quail drives her daughter into a career in show business, guiding her from amateur nights to vaudeville to A. E. F. shows and finally to the Broadway big time. Although Sally becomes a fine dramatic actress, her mother never allows her to develop a personality of her own and strictly forbids her any romantic life; whenever Sally falls in love with a young fellow, Ma drives him away. Sally eventually has a nervous breakdown, and a doctor makes Ma realize that she is ruining her daughter's life. Ma then reunites Sally with the boy she loves, and Sally returns to her former prominence as an actress.
