A Boy of Flanders is a 1924 American silent family drama film directed by Victor Schertzinger and written by Max Abramson. It is based on the 1872 novel A Dog of Flanders by Ouida.

As described in a film magazine review,[3] left orphaned by the death of his mother, Nello is dependent upon his old blind grandfather who sells milk in the village. The child assumes all household responsibilities and takes his grandfather about. His only friend is Alois Cogez and her mother, but her father hates the boy and makes life hard for him. Nello nurses back to health Petrasche, a poor beaten dog, and they become fast friends. Things go from bad to worse and Nello finally decides he can fight it no longer. He goes out into the storm of the night prepared to die, but his faithful dog finds him, he is restored and told that he has won the art prize and is to be adopted by Jan Van Dullen, the noted artist.
