Parvenue Ichabod Boggs ( Walter Walker ), the pickle king of America, assumes aristocratic airs and attempts to climb his way into society by insisting that his Harvard-educated son Monte ( Jack Devereaux ) marry a member of the English gentry. Angered at his father's values, Monte leaves home and marries Hazel Stanley ( Winifred Allen ), a showgirl. With Hazel's $5000 inheritance, the newlyweds corner the vinegar market, an ingredient that Ichabod needs for his pickles. Hazel agrees to sell the vinegar to her father-in-law for $60,000, and when Ichabod realizes the ingenuity of his daughter-in-law, the pickle king abandons his notions about aristocracy and blesses his son's marriage.
This 1917 silent comedy was produced by the Triangle Film Corporation, starring Jack Devereaux and Winifred Allen. The survival status of American - That's All is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
