Description by OLDIES.com:
Garry Holms is secretly married to Margaret Selfridge. Margaret's father has Garry arrested and sent to prison as a burglar when Garry sneaks in to see his wife and baby.
THE FAMILY SECRET involves wealthy Gladys Hullette and her poverty-stricken beau Edward Earle. To avoid incurring her father's wrath, Hullette marries Earle in a secret ceremony. When Hullette' child is born, papa throws her out of the house. Year pass: Earle, sneaking into his father-in-law's home to visit his child, is arrested as a burglar. It is up to the daughter-played by perennial "little Miss Fixit" Baby Peggy Montgomery--to straighten things out. Based on Frances Hodgson Burnett's hoary old kiddie story EDITHA'S BURGLAR, THE FAMILY SECRET is handled with wit and nuance by director William A. Seiter.
