Sally of the Sawdust (1925)

Adobe Chapel, 3963 Conde Street in Old Town San Diego

"Sally of the Sawdust is one of [D.W.] Griffith's more enjoyable films. While this has as much - or more - to do with its starring W.C. Fields in his first leading role, the film is also a showcase for Griffith's direction, making charming use of a good deal of beautifully pastoral location shooting that helps to give Sally an almost-luminous glow. The film is an adaptation of Fields' stage success, Poppy." - Mountain Xpress

Judge Foster (Erville Alderson) throws his daughter out because she married a circus man. She leaves her baby girl with Prof. McGargle (W.C. Fields) before she dies. Years later Sally (Carol Dempster) is a dancer with whom Peyton (Alfred Lunt), a son of Judge Foster's friend, falls in love. When Sally is arrested McGargle must prove her real parentage.
