Famous for his rendition of the sentimental ballad My Old Dutch, British music-hall artiste Albert Chevalier was both star and co-writer of this filmed version. The story concerns a pair of cockney street entertainers who scrimp, save and sacrifice to insure that their son will have a decent future. It takes a long, long time, but the son finally repays his parents' kindness by rescuing them from bankruptcy and eviction. American actress Florence Turner plays the heroine, while Turner's longtime collaborator Larry Trimble directed. My Old Dutch was remade and updated in 1935 as a vehicle for Betty Balfour.
