A little girl named Star lives with a lighthouse keeper who rescued her when her parents drowned. A truant officer decides she should go to boarding school but she's rescued by relatives.
The lobsters that appear in the background during the "At the Codfish Ball" sequence were real. To prevent them from crawling out of their baskets, the props crew cooked them, which turned them from their natural dark color to bright red. The crew painted them back to the original color, and as soon as the scene was completed, they cracked the lobsters open and ate them on the spot.
Mrs. Agatha Mogan:
There seems to be some doubt about the child's age. You say she has the learning of a child of eight. Very well, we'll call her eight.
Helen: Maybe I'm only six.
Capt. January: I'll stand on eight.
