*"Peggy (also known as The Devil's Pepper Pot) is a 1916 American silent comedy film produced and directed by Thomas Ince and stars Billie Burke in her motion picture debut.


Triangle Film Corporation produced Peggy. Victor L. Schertzinger composed the film's score. In conjunction with the film's release, sheet music of a song, Peggy, was published, the first time a song based on a silent film's incidental music had been written and published.[2] The cover of the sheet music shows Schertzinger as the composer and Ince as the lyricist.

*"Peggy Cameron, a New York high-society favorite, must suddenly move to the moors when her uncle and guardian, Andrew Cameron, insists that she come live with him in Scotland. Despite the gloomy surroundings, Peggy does her best to maintain her New York lifestyle; her fast driving and men's clothing dismay straitlaced Andrew and the other villagers. Then Peggy shows her serious side when she comes to the aid of an unmarried expectant mother who has been made a social outcast. From this, Peggy wins the villagers' grudging respect. Finally, the Reverend Donald Bruce, who has fallen in love with her, persuades her to stay in Scotland and marry him after Andrew, ironically, has agreed to let her return to the United States."
