Amanda Afflick is a lovesick laundress who daydreams about customer Horace Greensmith and cherishes the shirt he brought in for washing eight months and sixteen days ago. She tells her fellow workers that the garment belongs to her fiance, a lord. Just wait, Amanda boasts; one day his lordship will return for his wash - and for her. Mary Pickford is heartbreaking as a lonely working girl so desperate for love that she tells her troubles to the laundry's delivery horse. But when Amanda rescues the nag from the glue factory and brings him home with her to her tenement flat, the result is a huge and hilarious ruckus. This bittersweet tale originally ended with Amanda abandoned by her "fiance," sadly musing "Who could love me? Who could? Nobody never won't." This conclusion struck some audiences as too tragic, so two alternative happy endings were filmed - one for the American release, one for international releases. This edition includes all three final scenes.
