Old Clothes is a 1925 American silent drama film, starring Jackie Coogan and Joan Crawford.

This was the first film in which Crawford was credited with her new name — Joan Crawford. She had been renamed by the studio, who deemed her birth name, Lucille LeSueur, as sounding unfit for a movie star.

Plot summary[edit]

Tim Kelly (Jackie Coogan) and Max Ginsberg (Max Davidson) have struck it rich by investing in copper stock. But when the stock takes a dive, they are compelled to go back into their former profession — junk dealers. They take in the destitute Mary Riley (Joan Crawford) as a boarder and she hits it off so well with them that she winds up becoming a partner in their rag & junk company. Mary falls in love with a man named Nathan Burke (Allan Forrest), the son of wealthy parents. Nathan's mother (Lillian Elliott), however, disapproves of Mary. Eventually it is revealed that Mrs. Burke came from a poor background herself, and her long-ago sweetheart was Max. After this discovery, she gives the couple her blessings. The copper stock soars in value once again, so Kelly and Ginsberg are back in the money.[1]
