First filmed in 1915, the time-honored Albert Chevalier stage success My Old Dutch was remade (this time sans Chevalier) in 1926. May McAvoy stars as Sallie Brown, young costermonger (street peddler) who sells her fish and vegetables in the streets of London. With the help of her hard-working husband Joe (Pat O'Malley) she endeavors to pay for a fancy education for her son David (Cullen Landis). The boy grows up ashamed of his low-born parents but at the last moment realizes how much they've done for him and rescues the couple from the poor farm. My Old Dutch was filmed a third time as a Betty Balfour vehicle in 1934.
