The Doctor, the Widow, and the Teenage Match-Maker

The baby girl was born in New Orleans in the fall of 1893. Her parents were on the way to the church to have their new baby girl christened as Beatrice. Her mother suddenly remembered that her father had been engaged to a girl named Beatrice, and that name would never do for his first daughter. The mother started mentally changing the first letter of the name Beatrice, in hopes of quickly coming up with a different name, and nothing sounded right until she got to the letter ‘L,’ and Beatrice Joy became Leatrice Joy.

Leatrice first appeared in a silent movie as an extra when she was twenty-three years old, and was featured in several silent blockbuster motion pictures produced by Cecil B. DeMille. When sound was added to moving pictures, she left the industry, only appearing in small roles in a few movies like this one. Her wealth from her silent movie career enabled her to have a maid, but after twelve years as Leatrice’s maid, Louise Beavers started acting in motion pictures and had a very successful acting career, usually in the role of a maid.

In this story, Leatrice is Julie Harper, the widowed mother of a teenage boy, struggling to get along in the small rural town. Child actor Marcia Mae Jones is Betty Elliott, the teenage daughter of the town doctor. When she arrives to spend the summer with her father, she decides to play cupid and try to get her father to propose to the widow, but it won’t be easy. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
