Hungry Arms was written, produced and directed by Anthony Moran. Starred in the leading role was his little daughter Priscilla Moran. Living with her grocer grandpa (William V. Mong), precocious Priscilla O'Day (Priscilla Moran) discovers a baby on her doorstep. She insists on keeping the infant, but Grandad does his civic duty and prepares to inform the authorities. En route, he is struck down by a speeding auto and incapacitated for the rest of the picture. Meanwhile, the baby's mother inaugurates a search for the child. She doesn't have to search long: hoping to raise some extra money, Priscilla enters the kid in a "beautiful baby" contest, winning first prize. When the baby is inevitably taken away from Priscilla, the plucky girl kidnaps the infant -- and on it goes until a happy ending is finally reached, undoubtedly to the relief of the exhausted audience.
