In the days before there were outright Oscar campaigns, William Randolph Hearst pushed hard (behind the scenes) for an Oscar nomination for Marion Davies for this hit film. However, her chances were hurt because there were only three nominees in the acting categories that year. Had there been five nominees, she might very well have won a nomination. See more »
Marion Davies, (Peg O'Connell) plays the role of a very young girl who lives with her father Pat O'Connell, (J.Farrell MacDonald) in a simple fishing village where she is a bit of a tom boy gal who is full of energy and fun and well liked. One day Pat & Peg are visited by Sir Gerald Markham, (Onslow Stevens) who tells Peg & Pat they are heirs to the estate of her grandfather, who hated Pat. Peg is told she has to go to England for three years to learn to become a lady and she is never to see her father Pat. Things start to change in Peg's life and she begins to want to live with her father and does her very best to find her dad.
