Baby Doll's plot about two rival gin mill owners with one trying to figure out if the other burn down his is extremely thin. It's the very definition of just a set up for the interactions between the characters. In fact even the interactions between the characters is pretty disjointed with everyone being on a different wavelength except Eli Wallach and Carroll Baker. The two of them are great together in their romance is both sweet and somewhat humorous. There really is not much to the film other than when they are together, but the scenes are enough for the film to get by.
