Lovey Mary was a 1926 American comedy-drama film directed by King Baggot. Based on the 1903 novel of the same name by Alice Hegan Rice, the film stars Bessie Love in the title role. The story is a sequel to Rice's Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch and Lovey Mary is one of the characters from that earlier novel.[1]

The film survives, but is incomplete.[2]


Lovey Mary (Love) is a runaway from an orphanage who takes a little companion and finds a home with poor and kind Mrs. Wiggs (Mary Alden). As a plus, the cheerful young girl also meets Mrs. Wiggs eldest son, Billy (William Haines).
