Hot on the heels of Edison's The Little Sister came Vitagraph's thematically similar The Little Father. The title character is an impoverished newsboy who, after the death of his father, becomes sole support of his mother. The plot takes a sinister turn when the mother is accused of a crime she didn't commit and thrown in jail. Meanwhile, the hero sells all the furniture in his tiny flat and purchases a newsstand in a wealthier section of town. By the time the mother is cleared of all charges, her son has made certain that her financial future is secure.
