On November 21, 1920, the film Dinty was released. Some scenes involving airplanes were filmed on California's Santa Catalina Island. Dinty is a freckle-faced newsboy whose fight to care for his ailing mother leads him into conflicts with the other boys on the street and then with drug smugglers in Chinatown.


"Six rushing reels of mystery, drama, romance, laughter and thrills," according to the Bemidji Daily Pioneer (Bemidji, Minnesota), December 10, 1920.
