Molly Malone (Marguerite Gale) gets the whirlwind assignment with the New York Tribune to interview eleven Broadway stars in less than 72 hours. The plot gimmick was actually a devise to film the stars at their own homes all over the New York area. Better-remembered celebrities included May Robson and female impersonator Julian Eltinge!

Scenes of the famous stage stars, who played themselves, were shot at their summer homes around New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Included shorts:

"Nursery Favorites" (1913) Edison Talkie

"Sergeant Hofmeyer" (1914) Ford Sterling
