Released from Sing Sing, to which he was unjustly sentenced, and encouraged by two "sharpers," Richard Goodloe ( Monte Blue ) returns to the home of his wealthy southern mother in dread fear that she and Virginia Sanders ( Sigrid Holmquist ) should learn of his prison record--a fear which is constantly nurtured by his rival, " Con " Arnold ( Arthur Carew ). Richard enlists the aid of his two friends to help Dixie, his mother's horse, win the Kentucky Derby. Realizing Dixie's inability to do so, they substitute Calamity Jane's ( Lucy Fox ) Lightnin', which does win the race. Arnold exposes the substitution and Richard's past, but his triumph is interrupted by a detective, who arrests Arnold for past crimes.
This 1922 silent drama was produced by Pyramid Pictures, starring Monte Blue. As with many silent films the survival status of My Old Kentucky Home is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it is now lost.
