The Mate of the Sally Ann (also known as Peggy Rebels)[1] is a 1917 silent film directed by Henry King.


Captain Ward is an old man living in a ship with his granddaughter Sally. Sally's mother died when Sally was born and never revealed the identity of her father. That's why Ward is overprotective of Sally. One day, Sally finds a dog and sneaks him into the ship. He runs away, however. Sally follows him to the mansion of Judge Gordon. There she meets Hugh Schuyler, the young friend of Ward. They fall in love, but Ward chases him away.

When the judge visits the captain, he tells him he doubts he is Sally's father. Ward becomes angry and kills him. Sally finds out Ward is actually her father and accepts a marriage proposal from Hugh. She elopes with him and they live happily ever after.[2]
