Universal's "Baby Sandy" series officially ended with Sandy Gets Her Man,
but the infant star still had one picture left on her contract, so that's why
Bachelor Daddy was born. Edward Everett Horton, Donald Woods, and
Raymond Walburn carry the burden of the plot as the Smith Brothers,
Joseph, Edward and George. Confirmed bachelors, the Smiths are forced
to play nursemaid when a baby is accidentally abandoned at their
doorstep. The laughs arise from the brothers' bumbling efforts at
parenthood, culminating in a slapsticky finale wherein the runaway Baby
Sandy takes charge of a hand-operated elevator. Ironically, one of the
minor players in Bachelor Daddy is teenager Juanita Quigley, who once
enjoyed brief stardom at Universal as "Baby Jane".
